The Tom Doak Challenge is named after world renowned and St Andrews Beach course designer Tom Doak. Doak is also responsible for world class golf courses including Barnbougle Dunes (TAS), Cape Kidnappers (NZ), Pacific Dunes Golf Club (USA) and many others.

Doak is justifiably proud of St Andrews Beach Golf Course, and defines his work as one of his favourites due to the natural terrain requiring minimal artificial work during design and construction.

“While we recognize that not every site lends itself to a minimalist approach, our favorite projects are those where we can find natural holes just lying on the ground, requiring minimal disturbance to build. Of all the projects we have built so far, the Gunnamatta Course at St. Andrews Beach required the least artificial work: other than softening greens contours and digging bunkers, only three holes required any earthmoving at all”.
