Originally designed and constructed by Hawtree Ltd in 1994 the course had been neglected over the years and had fallen behind the top quality new golf courses being constructed in the Antalya area. Over the past few years we have designed and supervised the renovation of all 27 holes, including bunkers, all tee complexes (work in progress) and three new greens.
Before the work commenced the bunkers were in a terrible state of repair, often out of position and poorly styled. As can be seen from the pictures below, the bunkers now possess a distinctive style that blends well with the nature of the site. All the bunkers were effectively designed on site. A masterplan was prepared but we personally marked the location and shape of the bunkers out on site and worked directly with the shaper during construction. The work has transformed the golf course.
It was also clear that area between the holes required addressing. The irrigation system spreading water into the trees was causing the growth of numerous shrubs, bushes and other unwanted vegetation that spoilt the open sandy feel between the the trees and would also make recovery of ball difficult and slow play. Gradual removal of all this vegetation is occuring (along with the neccessary adjustments to the irrigation system) to open up these areas and give the golf course the unique and attractive appearance of open sandy areas between the trees in stark contrast to the greenness of the in play areas.
Futher work is still required in the form of new tees, a new 21st green and continued removal of unwanted scrub between the holes.
