The first phase of a series of upgrades to the Championship Course at Trevose Golf and Country Club in Cornwall, UK, has been completed.
Led by Mackenzie & Ebert, work began in autumn 2015 following a review of the course. The initial areas of focus included the second, ninth and thirteenth holes.
Much of the work at the course – which was originally designed by Harry Colt and opened for play in 1925 – is focusing on introducing a consistent bunkering style.
The work also involves the introduction of a number of new greens, while more than half of the course’s green surrounds are being extensively reshaped. This element of the project is being inspired by the best of the course’s original greens, such as that on the seventh and tenth holes.
“From the first meeting with Mackenzie & Ebert, we were confident that we shared the same outlook and their enthusiasm for the project was clear from that day onwards,” said Nick Gammon, managing director of Trevose Golf and Country Club. “The project has progressed quickly because we wanted to build up momentum rapidly to show members and visitors our vision for the course. It has been very exciting to witness the transformation that the team has achieved on the second, ninth and thirteenth holes in less than three months.”
The next phase of the project will get underway in the autumn, with the creation of a completely new green and bunkering on the course’s fourth hole.
Gammon commented: “The fourth has long been our signature hole, but it is fair to say that the green has enormous untapped potential, so we look forward to creating something altogether more exciting that will better showcase our unique location and provide golfers with a stunning view out over the bay and down the Atlantic coast.”
“We are honoured to be helping Trevose build on the success that they have enjoyed,” said Tom Mackenzie of Mackenzie & Ebert. “Our goal is to make it even better and to build on its obvious strengths and Harry Colt provenance.”
