Constructing a golf course is not easy. You need a detailed plan for it. You should be actively involved in all the stages of the development. Here are five tips for constructing a golf course.
Complete feasibility study
The golf course architect is responsible for guiding you from the concept to the completion stage. You should perform technical feasibility. You should consider whether the site is appropriate for the golf course or not, examine the soil, topology, land area, geology, vegetation, water availability, etc. You need to examine the environmental and legal restrictions as well. You must do market feasibility study after that to find out if there is demand for the golf course and what must be done to ensure its long-term success, etc.
The architect will assess design concepts and visit sites. He or she will check the slopes, soil conditions, water availability, etc. Based on these factors the final design concept should be approved.
Masterplan and cost of the project
Now you need to convert the design concept into the actual master plan. You will decide on the layout, the playing surfaces, the landscape, location, etc. You also need to calculate the cost of the entire project.
The architect will prepare detailed documentation for the project to be tendered. They may also help you to evaluate the tender responses.
Golf course construction
Your architect will help you to develop the construction program. He or she will visit the site regularly during construction and make sure everything is going according to the plan.
If you want to build a golf course then you will have to follow these steps. You should make sure that the project doesn’t exceed your budget and gets completed on time.
