Following the Masterplan, the extension of the golf courses of the Golf & Land Club Ahaus in North Rhine Westfalia, Germany from 27 to 36 holes has been completed in several construction phases. This was to allow members and greenfee guests to play undisturbed during the construction process.
In the first stages of construction on the existing golf courses several new holes, especially par 3 holes, were integrated into the courses. Additionally, some fairways on the existing course have been rebuilt and newly organised so that only the construction of seven new fairways remain to be completed on the northern extension area.
The modifications on the existing golf courses have now been completed and the holes are in operation.
The new fairways are being built on agricultural land around a farm house complex.
The central element in this area is the ponds, which come into play on 5 holes.
For a first impression here are some pictures from the bird-eye and the player perspective.
The construction team of Dennis Brehmer has done a great job during the final weeks of 2017 and will continue mid-March. The completion is scheduled for early summer, with the opening scheduled for the next season.
The selection of grass species and plants was based on the local situation.
For the ecological enhancement, additional wetland areas with different water levels, based on rainfall and changing ground water levels, have been created to offer, together with the ponds, additional habitat areas for the native flora and fauna, but also contain interesting aspects from the perspective of golf.
A successful example of the sustainable planning and realization of a golf course!
