Lobb & Partners
golf course architects

 

Tandridge Golf Club in Surrey has taken on the services of Lobb + Partners to carry out renovations to its historic Harry Colt-designed course.

Tim Lobb, whose past projects include work on Colt courses at St George’s Hill and Blackmoor, is determined that Colt’s legacy will be honoured in a sympathetic, long-term renovation that will retain his original design philosophy while bringing the course up to date for the modern age.

Colt’s original course dates from 1924, and Lobb has been engaged by the club to carry out a ‘course-evolution programme’, retaining its natural and historic character.

Lobb and his colleagues have gathered extensive historical data on the course, including aerial photography from English Heritage from the 1940s, ’60s and ’90s, as the team looks to assess potential changes in a systematic way.

Tandridge’s course director, Peter Allington, said: “Many improvements have been made to the course over the past ten years, but it is imperative we continue to move the club forward in a controlled and planned manner, so we are looking to produce and implement a course evolution plan for the next decade and potentially beyond that. Tim brings a professional and creative approach to the design process, while always respecting the Colt philosophy, and he maintains a ‘hands-on’ presence during the construction phase.”
