Planning & Design

The outline routing plan resulting from the inception stage is worked-up into a master plan for the site. From this, each technical aspect is designed in integration with the rest, ensuring that landscaping earthworks, irrigation and drainage are technically sound individually, but also take full account of the co-ordinated functioning of the golf course.
