Golf emulates our ancient passion for battle, survival, and conquest.  It leaves one alone to battle the natural landscape and elements, while at once enjoying its beauty.  Nowhere is this more apparent and celebrated than at Tres Vidas.  The Pacific Ocean is the focus of this exclusive, private residential golfing community, on a secluded beach, outside Acapulco.  

Kelly Blake Moran, as lead architect and land planner, routed a golf course that reaches the ocean beach on five separate occasions, planned the residential neighborhoods with many home sites fronting the ocean, produced all of the golf course construction plans, and was on site frequently to personally implement the design during the construction and post-construction phases. 

Tres Vidas is one of the premiere country clubs in the Americas.  This is principally attributed to the challenging and beautiful golf course. Hence, it is important that the course be sustainable, that it be designed to wisely use the natural resources available to it.  Kelly Blake Moran has shown here that a course of the very highest ideals can exist on the most challenging of landscapes.
