Golf Course Architecture - Issue 75, January 2024

81 PROMOTED GreenScan 3D Booth: 3621 GreenScan 3D is providing grade control and 3D modelling services for the renovation of the golf course at the historic East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia, the venue for the Tour Championship, the final event of the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup. These technologies will give the architect, Andrew Green, precise control over green design. Once Green, the contractor Total Turf Golf Services and shaping team have shaped new greens to the final grade, they are scanned and 3D modelled by GreenScan 3D. The colour slope analysis can then be reviewed by Green, and new contours drawn and then digitised by GreenScan 3D to create a 3D model and grade control file, which can then be used for construction to USGA specifications. The model is loaded onto a total station to allow the contractor to ensure greens are built to the correct specifications, including uniform mix and gravel layers. Bunker Solution Booth: 4436 Bunker Solution has provided its liner for the renovation of the Quarry course at Black Diamond Ranch in Lecanto, Florida. “Sand is now in the beautiful bunkers at Black Diamond Ranch,” says Morris Johnson of Bunker Solution. “The patented bunker liner was installed in all of the sand hazards by Bobby Holmes and the Golf Sculptors International team. Golf course superintendent Ben Noland has done an outstanding job growing-in this Tripp Davis-designed project.” Golf course operator Escalante Golf, which runs Black Diamond Ranch, chose Bunker Solution’s liner due to its proven performance, particularly for making bunkers more playable and in reducing labour for a club’s maintenance staff. Other clubs that have installed Bunker Solution include Quail Hollow, Floridian Golf Club, and East Lake.
