The Regnum Ankara Golf Estate course, the first full-sized golf course in the region of the Turkish capital city, has completed grassing and is now growing in, in preparation for opening in spring 2020.
The course is the third collaboration between Lobb and developer Fikret Ozturk, and is also the fifth course built by the architect and contractors Naki Evandr and Cengizhan Bolükbasi of GolfTek.
“It has been a really efficient construction process, testimony to the advantages of having a strong team who have worked together before,” says Tim Lobb (above). “It was a well-thought-out, considered job, which required great flexibility in responding to site conditions because of the nature of the property. It’s great to continue our successful run in Turkey, a country I love to visit and to work in.”
With the opening of their NEWGIZA course in Egypt after a very long and complicated build it has been quite a summer for Lobb + Partners. “NEWGIZA was a huge milestone for us,” says Lobb, “and the course has already received some great response.
“We have a bunch of new opportunities in different countries that we hope to be able to report in future newsletters – and our course renovation business is doing great, with all three of the famous ‘Three Ws’ near Woking in Surrey now working with us. LOBB + PARTNERS is a multi-discipline practice providing comprehensive golf development services for golf course design, existing course renovation/ restoration, master planning, architecture and landscape architecture. As is demonstrated by our new corporate video.”
