public. The public also has access to

any tee times before 1pm that have not

been reserved 24 hours in advance.

Members have unlimited access to

practice facilities and balls, while a

practice membership is also available

that allows players to hit unlimited

balls and then pay a green fee to play

the course.

Fuller believes that concepts such at

the one at The River Club could act as a

template for other clubs. “If a club with

an existing 18-hole course was looking

to sell off land to real estate developers,

what we’ve done at The River Club

is a good example of how to create a

great golfing

experience in

a limited area,”

Fuller concludes.

“Not only can

clubs potentially

benefit from a model

such as this, but

golfers can also enjoy

a flexible course that

meets their play and

practice needs.”

In order to make room

for an expansive practice

facility (as seen at the top

of the routing map image

on the left), architect and

owner decided upon

a nine-hole design, but

utilised both double and

alternate greens, as

well as a wide range of

teeing areas, in order to

provide golfers with a

great variety in the way

they can play the course
