Golfclub Wouwse Plantage, Netherlands

Project Details

The brief for this project was to raise the quality of the golf course to bring it into the top 20 courses in the Netherlands which we achieved. The course originally consisted of two very different sets of nine holes which had been designed by two architects: the original course by Frank Pennink, in the 1970’s, and the newer nine by Paul Rolin in the late 1980’s. A bunker redevelopment project began in 2003 to unify the bunker styles and all were either rebuilt or repositioned to develop a more interesting strategic golfing test over a two-year period. A few greens were also extended on the Pennink holes to bring them more into scale with modern needs and to provide a greater range of pin positions. A tee improvement programme followed in 2005/6.
