Swan Golf Designs is planning renovation work at Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands Golf Club near Milton Keynes, England.
“We’ve been appointed to design golf course improvements, with a view to begin implementation in the autumn and winter,” said William Swan. “This will likely see changes to tees, bunkers and green surrounds with additional focus on more effective tree and landscape management.
“It’ a great honour to be asked to ‘improve’ a course with such a unique history and one which is so highly regarded.”
The design firm is now in progress with its initial assessment of the course, which is a blend of heathland and parkland. Its original nine holes were designed by former Open champion Sandy Herd and opened in 1914. A second nine designed by Robert Sandow was added in 1974.
Simon Dennis, general manager at Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands, said: “I am pleased to be able to work alongside William and the team at Swan Golf Designs once more. My personal experience of the company is wholly positive and professional, and we look forward to reaping the benefits over the next few seasons.”
