Ardfin Estate Jura, Scotland
Architect: Bob Harrison www.harrisongolf.com
New 18 Hole Championship Golf course and Driving range built on a remote Scottish Island with a Population of just 180 people. Ardfin estate is a 15,000 acre Estate that has been a Deer stalkers paradise for over 150 years.
The most logistically challenging Course ever built in the UK where all material and Machine used for the construction had to be shipped by Barge to the Island.
A hugely ambitious project which runs along the famous coastline of Jura with a seemingly endless supply of breath taking views.
The Course construction started in August of 2014. Seeding was completed in August 2016 and the course was ready for play in June 2017.
"I am very thankful for SOL’s efforts in difficult ground conditions, and on a site which is a logistic nightmare, to help squeeze the best possible result from Ardfin’s astonishingly spectacular and interesting site. The weather conditions were also foul, but no obstacle was too daunting for them – they always adjusted and kept going. I’m also thankful for SOL’s skill level to help achieve the style and strategic interest I wanted from the start. Their efforts with construction really did complement my own efforts in design, and the ambition for the completed course"
