Services - New Golf Courses

The process of developing a new course is a complex one so having a golf course architect that fully understands the process and can guide a client round the many and varied pitfalls along the way is essential.

Site selection and evaluation

Although this is usually not an option for most developers, probably the most important decision when planning a golf development is selecting the site as its natural attributes can make the difference between a good golf course and great one. By carrying out a thorough evaluation of a site it will identify its benefits and how best to exploit them and its constraints and how to overcome them.

Market demand and feasibility study

As well as selecting/evaluating a site, what to develop on the site also needs much consideration. RGD will analyse the local market, assess golfing need and look in to planning /permitting constraints and advise on the most appropriate form of development and the likely costs of the project.

Master Planning

Once a site and form of the development has been chosen, RGD will then sit down with the client and formulate a plan based on all the information available. The site will be fully analysed through site and desk-top assessments and some conceptual models produced. Following an iterative process involving input from specialist consultants, planners and other stakeholders, a final overall masterplan will be produced which can then be used as a basis for both planning applications and construction.

Construction Documents

RGD will produce a full set of plans to assist with both planning applications and for bidders to price from as part of the construction element of the project along with specification documents. RGD can also assist the client with the tender process.

Construction Monitoring

For the completed construction to match the intended design it is important for the golf course architect and the golf course builder to interact and remain in constant contact during the various phases of construction. RGD can perform the role as the client’s representative and act as a point of reference for both the client and the contractor during the build with the ability to sign off work, certify payments, resolve disputes etc.
