At Woking Golf Club, only a couple of miles from his home, Tim is working with Course Manager Andy Ewence and General Manager Richard Pennell to create a new set of forward tees, with the aim of making the course more playable for short-hitting golfers, including juniors, seniors and women.

 

The first phase of the project, which began in early March, covers holes 1, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12 and 15. These works were completed by the end of March, and are being handled by contractor MJ Abbott, Rainbird Irrigation as well as Ewence’s team.

 

Tim said: “Our heather restoration work at Woking has been a great success, and is set to improve the course’s environmental impact significantly. Heather is beautiful and it is the appropriate choice for a heathland course, but it is a tough and unyielding hazard for players with slow swing speeds. Therefore adding more forward tees is a sensible choice to make the course less penal for such players.”

 

Richard Pennell said: “Tim, has been our consulting architect for several years now and he really knows and understands the course well. These new tees will play an important part in enhancing Woking’s appeal to players of all standards.”
