The services required by the client will vary depending upon site specifics, but would generally include:
Existing golf course analysis/development plan
We compile a golf course analysis report which will consider items such as; current course layout, balance and variation of holes, course measurement, feature design, drainage and irrigation systems, safety considerations, course conditioning, maintenance facilities, etc. We use this analysis as the basis to make recommendations for a long-term development plan to be monitored and implemented in partnership with the Head Green-keeper, golf club officials and any other required specialists.
Course layout plans
Normally we produce a course layout as part of the development plan, however even without a full development plan in place a course layout can be useful for green-keepers as a management tool, and to club officials as a means of communication to the membership. The content and composition of the layout plan can be tailored to suit the needs of the club.
Planning assessment and approvals
In the case of major renovation work or additional holes, we review the client’s requirements, prepare a planning strategy, confirm the requirement for planning permission and then prepare and submit the required applications.
Application for available grants
We investigate and apply for all available grants related to the particular project.
Construction drawings and specifications
For golf clubs who wish to carry out renovations or additions we can produce a full set of professional AutoCAD drawings and construction specifications as part of the contract documents.
We always prefer to be involved in the interview and selection process of contractors and their key staff. Construction supervision We carry out regular site visits through the entire process to monitor the progress and workmanship of the contractor, make decisions and approvals regarding all aspects of construction and to fine tune drainage, irrigation and feature locations.
Maintenance facility requirements
We advise clients regarding building and storage requirements to comply with Statutory and Health and Safety Regulations. We also advise regarding machinery requirements and suppliers.
After care service
Following construction and establishment, we make several visits for fine tuning and general advice on maintenance issues. We can also produce course measurement details for yardage books.
