This is one of the more unusual projects to be involved in. The Stejarii Country Club was already established and was developed by Ion Tiriac, Romanian ex-professional tennis player/coach and property developer. The Country Club was designed to attract people interested in high quality tennis, fitness, wellness, spa and swimming facilities, including those who could afford to buy an apartment on site.
A rectangular area of land to the north of the site was designated for golf, but it was only 3 hectares, so it would only accommodate a driving range and short game practice area and small golf shop. However, we designed and built a new golf practice facility, previously unseen in Romania. We worked alongside Mike Copson Associates on the design of the driving range and for construction we brought in Ian Futcher as site manager/shaper and Phil Langdon as irrigation consultant. The construction work was completed in Autumn 2014 and then opened for play in Spring 2015.
