“It's still easy to see Colt's genius at Blackmoor, from the typical greens on plateaus, mostly natural, to the excellence of the par threes, to the characteristic diagonal echelon of bunkers that cross the tenth hole,” says Tim. “But, as with virtually every course of this vintage, the bunker shapes have lost a lot of their artistry, the greens have shrunk and the vegetation has changed. We look forward to getting to work to help the club deal with these issues.”

Blackmoor Golf Club

The historic Blackmoor Golf Club in Hampshire, southern England, has appointed Lobb + Partners to conduct a course review and advise particularly on its bunkering.

Blackmoor, which originally opened in 1913, was designed by the great architect Harry Colt, at the height of his pre-WW1 powers – at around the same time he worked at Blackmoor, he was designing St George's Hill, Pine Valley, Puerto da Hierro in Madrid and the Eden course at St Andrews. Interestingly though, the course had only twelve holes at this time – Colt returned after the war and completed the full eighteen holes, which opened in 1924.
