Admired for his exceptional charisma and business acumen, Greg Norman is an athlete of tremendous talent and undoubtedly one of the best-known and respected sporting personalities in the world. Norman 's record on the golf course ranks him among the world's best. Included in his achievements: 79 career victories, three-time Vardon Trophy winner, two-time British Open winner, PGA Player of the Year, three-time recipient of the Arnold Palmer Award for leading money winner.
These are a few of the reasons Greg Norman was selected to design Tiburón's two courses. The Tiburón courses are Norman 's 29th course design in the world, his 7th in the United States, and his most challenging golf course design yet. "One of the true marks of a quality golf course is its playability from all tees," said Norman . "Since the golf courses opened several years ago, I have received a lot of positive feedback from members and guests on how the golf courses play. Now, with the Franklin Templeton Shootout calling Tiburón home, the best players in the world are finding a great challenge. We're happy with what we created and glad that it presents an enjoyable test regardless of skill level."
Norman's design philosophy was to work with Tiburón's inherent beauty. In keeping with his aggressive playing philosophy, Norman has designed the Tiburón courses to challenge skills, sharpen ability, and instill an even deeper respect for the legends the game has created.
