Golf Course Architecture - Issue 60, April 2020

43 David Williams has completed another phase of renovation work on the Harry Colt-designed course at Real Golf de Pedreňa in Spain. This year’s work included the reconstruction of the par-four first and par-three seventh, the latter being many members’ favourite. All bunkers showed washout after heavy rain, which the redesign proposed to address with the addition of Durabunker edging and a Better Billy Bunker base, technologies which have been introduced to all the recently developed bunkers on the course. Construction was undertaken by JeriGolf, beginning in autumn 2019. Following delays caused by long periods of rain, work was completed in February with the seventh hole reopened in spring 2020.

The renovation involves new green complexes and bunkers, and improvements to the topsoil and turf conditions. New irrigation and drainage systems will be installed, surface drainage patterns improved, a short game area created, and tees added on all holes. “The most noticeable change will surely be the green complexes,” said Vijit Nandrajog, principal architect at Golf Design India. “The existing greens on the course are very poor and the new design looks to create larger complexes with interesting slopes and undulations to add strategy and challenge in play.” Image: Golf Design India Club redesign begins at SAI Trivandrum Golf Club Graham Marsh and Golf & Land Design, led by Hans-Georg Erhardt, have collaborated to design a new golf course for Eagle Pine Golf Resort in Limassol, Cyprus. “The aim is to create a centrepiece of golfing experience for Cyprus and the Mediterranean region, by taking advantage of the elevations of the terrain to achieve uninterrupted sea views and ravine views, while seeking to retain the natural vegetation, native trees and overall landscape,” said Lefteris Aristodemou, assistant general manager of Aristo Developers. Construction of the course is expected to start this year, once funding has been secured, and will take two years to build. Image: Harris Kalinka Marsh and Erhardt collaborate for Cyprus design
