One of the conditions of the new building permits was to increase the area for the golf course compared to the area previously requested for the real estate. Such directives are always good news for the golf course architect and the client has therefore given HG the go ahead to change the previous design and start with detailed drawings and tender documents.
HG are pleased that the layout is a 9 hole facility as Peter Harradine has been preaching for 9 hole layouts since over 25 years and long before they suddenly became the fashion.
The land is rather flat but this golf course will be an enjoyable and interesting 3170 yard PAR 35 with the provision of multiple tees and 3 artificial lakes including the preservation of many existing trees. HG have managed to allocate the real estate in such a manner that it will be largely unobtrusive and as “safe” as possible!
PH said “We are extremely happy to finally proceed with this project which has been on our drawing boards (computers) for such as long time and is finally coming to fruition!”
