Having worked closely with golf course architects and designers for over 10 years we have a very strong understanding of the data that is required to implement course design changes of fairways, bunkers, greens and all other features on a modern day golf course. We have completed full 3d topographical surveys of 18 hole golf courses, driving ranges, parking areas and club house areas to enable planning for new course design work to be implemented.
Typically the field work will take 2 weeks to complete using our GPS/GNSS reciever to survey large areas of the course quickly and then we can use a total station to survey more detailed areas as needed. Our cost effective approach and close relationship with our clients mean that we can deliver the necessary information needed on time and within budget. We also have the ability to implement your deign changes in CAD, calculating earthwork models, volume analysis, cut & fill calculations, cross sections and profiles, setting out drawings and more.
One of our most recent full course surveys was a 27 hole course in West Yorkshire. The course owners were looking at making some amendments to the existing course, looking at using some of the extra land they own but wasn't being used, and also trying to solve a few drainage issues they had on a couple of holes. We were also in close contact with the golf course architect and the decision was made to carry out a full topographical survey so that various options would be available to the club.
Using our Trimble R10 GNSS receiver we quickly measured the course detail, fairways, greens, tees and bunkers etc and then using our Trimble S7 we surveyed around the clubhouse and car park, and also any extra detail needed within tree areas on the course.
If you're looking for a detailed survey for your golf course please get in touch so we can discuss how we can help.
