The development of a new golf course on the outskirts of London, UK, has been given the green light.

Planning permission has now been granted for the creation of The Dye London. Plans for the course have been drawn up by Perry Dye of Dye Designs.

“My design team and I have been working on The Dye London golf course project over a period of five years,” Dye said. “This special project, a family-owned Dye Designs Championship golf facility that will be open to the public, located close to one of the world’s great capital cities, will attract golfers from all over the globe.”

The course is to be built on a site near the London suburb of Edgware, and will be the first Dye Designs course in the UK.

Interesting features of the layout include an island green on the seventh hole, which has been created as a homage to the seventeenth hole at TPC Sawgrass.

A large lake borders the course’s ninth and eighteenth holes, providing a tricky challenge for players towards the end of their rounds. The thirteenth hole appears to be the course’s longest, stretching between the site’s south east and north east corners.

The Dye London will be the latest addition to the portfolio of London-based golf facilities from the Menai-Davis family. The family are behind The Shire London – home to the UK’s only Seve Ballesteros golf course – and the West London Golf Centre near Northolt.

“This is a key moment for golf development in the UK, and we are delighted,” said Tony Menai-Davis. “We are looking forward to bringing Dye Designs’ stunning vision to life at a new facility which will delight all golfers, and which will also bring new visitors to the area from across the UK and Europe.
