The second and final phase of the major renovations works we are undertaking at The Buckinghamshire Golf Club is now in full swing. Works commenced in November and we plan finish by March 2017.

In this phase we are working on holes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 13, 14, 15 + 16 with new bunkering, new irrigation system and the formation on a green to tee cart path network. The weather has been kind so far and all the contractors and Course Manager РAndy Ewence are making great progress.

 

Profusion are doing a great job getting the shaping spot on to the brief. Hole 6 pictured above.

Our completed works to hole 8 - one year on. We enlarged the landing area on left side of lake to make a more strategic and enticing tee shot.

We look forward to keeping our readers updated on this project. It is great to see a club investing in their greatest asset — their golf course.
