PROJECT DESIGN SERVICES

​​The company undertakes the following scope of services.

​​1. INITIAL STUDY & SITE APPRAISAL ​​

​​An initial site visit and report is prepared on the development potential for the intended golf course related project. Utilising topographical maps, satellite images or other information available the project site is analysed for the suitablitly and potential for golf development.

The information is prepared as plans and documentation.

2.1 CONCEPT LAYOUT & ROUTING  ​​

​​Information from the site study is utilised to form and develop the concept golf layout. The initial routing is proposed together with core development objectives of the client brief.

Alternative golf course routings and layouts are tested and considered:
  • solar orientation
  • core facilities and access
  • terrain and elevation potential
  • landscape constraints
  • ecology considerations
  • geology
  • hydrology

2.2 PRELIMINARY MASTERPLAN  ​​

​​Independently or within a team of consultants this stage expands and develops preliminary concepts to develop project requirements and any initial planning constraints.

The preliminary golf course layout develops form with other considerations:
  • ​golf features and course style
  • core development and access considered in further detail
  • development concept zones introduced
  • playing areas and irrigation considered
  • water storage and lake formations proposed
  • landscape schemes considered
  • initial earthwork areas considered
  • maintenace facilities and circulation

3. FINAL MASTERPLAN  ​​

​​The Final Masterplan further develops the golf course layout and places greater emphasis on integration of core infrastructure details and design intent.  Development criteria is more clearly defined and prepared with area analysis.  

Landscape proposals are considered as part of the course and wider project parameters. The objective is to produce a golf course solution integrated with all other requirements to meet the project brief.

Information is analysed to allow budget estimates and construction programmes to be proposed.

4.1 PLANNING  ​​

​​Information or technical details brought forward from detail or schematic design are prepared to satisfy any further planning requirements.


4.2 DETAIL OR SCHEMATIC DESIGN  ​​

​​All preliminary information is advanced to greater design detail.

•Setting out plan for key golf course features and co-ordinates.
•General contouring, earthworks proposals and volumetric calculations.
•Lake designs, bridge designs, and lake overflows (in conjunction with engineering consultant).
•General grassing plan and irrigation areas.
•Integrate golf design with hard landscaping proposals, halfway house, shelters, aesthetic walling, streams, cascades, cart path and maintenance track.
•Integrate golf design with engineering consultant – features such as bridges, retaining walls, storm culverts or pipes.
•Final green details and contouring.
•Final tee and bunker formations.
•Final fairway shaping and mounding.
•Co-ordination of design with planting schedules.
•Standard details.



​​The company works with independent landscape companies, irrigation and agronomy consultants as required for completing the detailed design works. The company work with structural and engineering consultants as required to coordinate design installations.
