Nicolesti is located about 30 minutes north of Bucharest, in a region dotted with natural lakes.

The developer has 120 hectares to develop a golf course, a Country Club sports area, Club House, Conference Centre, and a residential community with about 400 independent and high-rise homes. In addition, he wants to dedicate 5ha to a large solar farm that generates green energy to power the residential and leisure complex.

After three intense months of analysis, they approved the final land planning where we propose a “Butterfly”” residential golf course, named for the layout of the urban environment with maximum visual integration with the golf course.
“The best golf design always comes from the deep analysis of the greatest constraints.” At National Golf, the biggest problem was a flat property, with less than 1m of slope in 54 hectares of golf land. The solution to the elevation problems was to create eight strategic lakes integrated into the design of the holes, all interconnected and at the same elevation, that is, all the lakes maintain the same level and simultaneously share the fluctuations.
