A few weeks back I showed you a behind the scenes view of some of the bunker renovation work that was happening at Army Golf Club (If you missed that post click here to go and check it out).
Today I am going to show you the finished product on a few of the holes, the 2nd, 5th and 16th, and whether you are a player or a course manager, I think you will like it.
I'd love to hear your perspective, how do they look and how does it change your feeling around the approach shots?
My goal is always to make the course enjoyable yet challenging for all who play it. The goal is not to just make it difficult.
All the bunkers you'll see are built with the Ecobunker System, which helps create that great face to the bunker. But don't panic... at Army Golf Club, the sand slopes away from the face so that your ball won't get stuck right up against it, giving you a shot out.
How A Few Small Changes Can Make A Big Impact On The Look & Playability
Recently I have been working with Army Golf Club www.armygolfclub.com located near Farnborough, Hampshire on a bunker renovation project. The project will be carried out over the next couple of years and will involve the remodelling of all the golf course’s 30 bunkers, and today I thought I would share with you the start of this project, by taking a look at the 2nd hole and the work they are doing there, take a look at the pictures...
Turning The "Bit Bland" 6th At The Royal Ascot Golf Club Into An Exciting Challenge
I was invited by Royal Ascot GC to appraise their 6th hole which they felt was ‘a bit bland’. They didn’t really have a budget in mind, they just wanted a few ideas to put to the board as part of a long-term plan for the golf course. When it comes to a golf hole remodelling, there can be a whole variety of changes and additions. So, I headed out to the 6th with the course manager, Ian Hockley, to take a look.
