Existing golf courses are living, evolving landscape precincts, which provide significant benefits to their members and the community at large. As the committees who control these courses know the task of maintaining the amenity for members and an environmental resource for the community can be quite onerous.  

Regardless of how well the course is perceived unless you are seen to be improving the course to increase the level of enjoyment for your members that perception of the course can diminish, particularly in the eyes of those members who discover the increasing number of very fine new courses available for play in this golf rich country of ours.  

At the same time responsible attention to enhance this natural resource can greatly increase the appreciation of the course and the game of golf by the broader community.  

As with all facets of business and life in general unless you have goals, guidelines and a control plan, the very best of intentions and moneys spent may not achieve optimum results.  

Our Master Planning service can ensure that your course yields its full potential by addressing those typically found problems such as safety, drainage, water storage, clubhouse function, parking, practice facilities, difficult to maintain areas, landscape rationale, the scorecard, course rating, general playability, sense of amenity to the community and any other issues unique to your situation.  

We take a common sense approach and all critical decisions are made by consensus with the Committee and once the plan is accepted guidelines can be set and programs put in place for implementation. A Master Plan need not represent massive change or disruption to your course but should be seen as a control plan for future course improvements.  

Compared to construction costs the fees for planning are minimal and money wisely spent on mental labour will be saved many times over during manual labour. Still more will be saved when the job is done well and carried out correctly in the first instance.
