At the start of 2019, GolfLink completed a renovation of the bunkers at Trump Aberdeen following a winter at Turnberry where the company built new greens and tees on the Ailsa course. All the while, work continued apace at Loch Lomond where the rebuild of eight holes was nearing completion. A mammoth task which was completed and back in play for April.In March, GolfLink commenced work on the largest golf construction project in the UK in 2019 with a new private golf course in North London on a 500-acre estate. A truly spectacular site was transformed in the summer, including an entire sandcap and was handed over in September, a month ahead of schedule. It was logistically a hugely challenging project and required a huge investment in machinery. GolfLink’s machinery partners assisted with this with the delivery of a new fleet of Hitachi excavators in April.Heading into the winter GolfLink welcomed work on five previous Open venues, probably unprecedented in any previous year, as work commenced on Royal Liverpool with new greens being constructed, Royal Lytham & St Annes, The Old course at St Andrews, and Turnberry. Meanwhile GolfLink’s second phase of work at Prince’s Golf Club kicked off where a further significant phase of works started. Also kicking off in October, is the last phase of work at Loch Lomond where the final eight holes will be constructed.
