Moortown Golf Club, Leeds, UK

Project Details

After completing a Course Review with Ken Brown and John Nicholson in 2004, we worked closely with Moortown Golf Club on a course improvement project which culminated in us winning the Renovation of the Year 2014 Award from Golf Inc magazine. Initially work concentrated on rebuilding two greens which had suffered from agronomic problems but later expanded to a course-wide renovation and restoration project on this key historic golf course designed by the renowned golf architect, Dr Alister MacKenzie. Many of the bunkers have been faithfully restored to their former shapes, using historic ground and aerial photos, and three holes which were built in the 1980’s were brought into character with the rest by building bunkers in a similar style. Since the course also hosts major amateur events we have also introduced some new strategic bunkering to challenge the top golfers.
