Max Maxwell & Nathan Crace - The Course Designers

The Copper Mill Golf Course was designed by golf course architects Max Maxwell from the Maxwell Golf Group and Nathan Crace from Watermark Golf/Nathan Crace Design. Immediately after the opening of the Golf Course it became clear that the two golf course architects have created a masterpiece; they have designed a golf course that appeals to both novice and experienced golfers, and provides just the right balance of relaxation and excitement. The Copper Mill Golf Course was designed in a way to challenge golfers and encourage them to do their best but at the same time, it was designed to enjoy each and every swing.
