Bishop Auckland Golf Club

Co. Durham, UK

Gaunt Golf Design were appointed to redesign the greens on holes #1, #2, #3, #4, #15 and #16, all of which had experienced long term maintenance and drainage problems.

Following an in-depth site visit, we advised the club that a 3D topographical survey should be undertaken (to our brief), enabling the design work and measurements to be more accurate. Our work involved the production of concept designs for all greens which were then considered and approved by the club committee. Following approval, we produced detailed construction drawings in 3D and all quantities/measures, together with a written specification for the contractors to follow. We also produced 3D video flythroughs of some of the greens, which bring our designs to life, giving the golf club a very clear and obvious indication as to what is going to be built, before lifting a shovel.

NLS Contracts Ltd were appointed by the club as contractors and they completed all works to a very high standard in 2015/16.
