About us

Contour Golf Design Group (CGDG) provides a range of services for Golf Course Architecture, Masterplanning and Landscape Design.

Founded in February 2009 (as Davey Shearer Golf Design) and based in Melbourne, Australia (with an office in Beijing, China), CGDG is committed to producing world class golf course developments that showcase design innovation, environmental responsibility and a respect for the traditions of the game of golf.  We design courses to be challenging, rewarding and enjoyable to play for golfers of all standards.

CGDG believes in a hands-on approach to golf course design and are convinced that a truly successful result can only be achieved when the architect commits himself to each project.  Building on time and on budget relies on the quality of preparation during the design process, before construction begins.  Success is achieved by listening to the needs of our clients, by working closely as a team with the client’s other consultants, by resolving most of the issues related to the design and construction of the course before construction begins and then fine-tuning it during construction to get the very best result.

At CGDG we believe in a team approach to all aspects of a project, from the concept design stage right through to construction and the course opening.  The true sign of a successful project is when everyone involved, from the contractors to the lead designers and the client, are proud of the end result and can celebrate this together.
