Golf course construction and development

The design process does not end with the handover of drawings. A golf course has to grow into its design.

Gaunt Golf Design builds a specialist team for each individual project and has a long, successful track record in project management.

We prepare contracts, tender documents and bills of quantities, which form the basis of negotiations with specialist contractors and shapers.

If local skills and expertise are available, we prefer to use them. If not, we will bring them in.

As author of the course design, Jonathan Gaunt will make regular site inspections throughout the construction period, producing detailed site reports and signing off work as it is completed.

Construction related duties:

  • Preparation of specifications for all aspects of construction
  • Preparation of contract/tender documentation including bills of quantities
  • Advising clients on the choice of contractor/supply of project manager
  • Liaising with clients regarding appointment of course superintendent
  • Advice on the appointment of specialist shapers
  • Site inspection visits by the golf course architect throughout construction phase
  • Certification and approval of work undertaken
  • On-site design sketches
  • Detailed written site reports
