Our small contribution so far to the environment
LITRES OF WATER RESERVOIRS DESIGNED
AV GOLF DESIGN courses are easy to play and difficult to score. We design Golf Courses which can be enjoyed by golfers of all playing abilities. In designing a golf course or any of its features, there are three basic considerations : The game itself, Aesthetics, Future maintainability.
These are sometimes referred to as the three P’s –
Playability, Pulchritude (Beauty) & Practicality.
These three P’s can be used to rate a golf course, golf hole, or golf feature.
Environmental issues are central and omnipresent.
When a professional golfer or accomplished amateur plans a course or a feature of a course, he/she is apt to emphasize playing aspects at the expense of the beauty and the practicality, whereas a golf course architect may favour eye appeal and a superintendent maintainability, but we as a team of professional golfers and golf course architects are able to keep the balance of the three P's.
The success of any project depends on proper planning. Time spent on planning is never a waste, its an investment worth going for. During the planning stage various important questions are to be addressed by experienced advisors. Some of these questions are:
- Is the site strategically located for Golf Course development?
- How is the accessibility to the site?
- How is the market demand and future potential for a golf course?
- Is the project going to be self sustaining and commercially viable?
- What is the expected return on investment (ROI)?
GOLF DESIGN & ARCHITECTURE
Following through on the ground study, a route plan on paper is indeed mandatory today. The more complete and accurate the site data, the greater the opportunity for the designer to achieve a layout of the highest quality consistent with the client’s budget and intentions. Site data are part of the inventory that the architect needs and uses to achieve the concept.
A routing plan includes – Core layouts, arrangement of holes, variety of holes, practice facilities, club house area selection, short course options, safety, siting golf car paths, siting shelters, siting the equipment building, turf & tree nurseries, future alteration and developments etc.
GOLF COURSE RENOVATION & REMODELING
Golf course renovation is not a uniform or an easy task. Every course has its own problems that need to be fixed using different approach and resources. But, in the end, the upgrading, renewal, remodelling or modernizing of any existing course is inevitable and unavoidable.
When evaluating whether renovation is needed, it is important to calculate realistic cost estimate for the whole construction. In addition to this you should estimate how many new members new enhanced course will attract and how much green fee and clubhouse sales can be increased. On the other hand you must also evaluate how much your cash flow will be decreased during construction to balance the calculations.
On some courses the renovation is no longer an option. It is an unavoidable must. If you cannot get the greens in good condition with normal care any-more or after heavy rain the course must be closed for several days you must ask yourself how bad the conditions will be if nothing is done. How many members you may lose? How many green fee rounds?
