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,
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.
