The 1897 James Braid designed course at Dartford Golf Club, Kent, on the outskirts of London is about to begin a renovation programme under the direction of Howard Swan and James Edwards of Swan Golf Designs based in Essex.
It is likely that works to the course will start this autumn with a bunker renovation exercise.
Howard Swan adds, “I am very pleased to be able to work on another James Braid course, adding Dartford to the likes of Middlesbrough, Workington, Old Fold Manor and, of course, the highly acclaimed renovation and restoration to Goodwood. We shall, as ever, look to sensitive and sympathetic treatment of the course and Braid’s design philosophies and intent in bringing the rather lovely, if modest, course at Dartford, to the present day.”
