• Construction of new practice / putting green facility
• Construction of practice facilities and all associated civil works
A unique course in its layout set in 1200 acres, with only two holes side by side.
A massive earthworks job which involved stripping over 600,000m2 of topsoil, 400,000m3 of earthworks and 120,000m2 of forestry clearance. In order to create the irrigation lake a further 30,000m3 of rock had to be broken out. Due to very challenging ground conditions and some very bad weather this job has required three seasons to complete.
"We have found SOL GOLF to be committed to achieving the highest standard of quality workmanship regardless of the scale of the project and budget involved. They have impressed us by being very adept at interpreting and visualising our design plans and with their in-house expertise in the form of dedicated shapers, finishing crews and on site supervisors."
