David Nelson’s fast-growing golf course construction company Greenmakers by Nelson&Vecchio has signed a turnkey contract to build a new Tilander Golf Design – designed seaside course in south-western Estonia.

The 18-hole course will be built on a 1.5 kilometre seaside stretch of sandy, heather covered land on the PärnuBay, just a few kilometres south of downtown Pärnu. The work to be performed will cover the 18-hole golf course as well as a large practice facility and will commence in mid-June. The golf course that will be a combination of links-style seaside holes and heathland is expected to open for play in the summer of 2014.

In addition to the golf facilities, the first phase of development will include the construction of a state-of-the-art clubhouse overlooking the Baltic Sea, a maintenance facility and significant investment in infrastructure.

Managing Director David Nelson: “I am honoured that myself and my company have been chosen to build a golf course on this fabulous piece of land. With a site like this we have a great foundation to create one of the greatest golf courses ever built in Northern Europe. “

GREENMAKERS BY NELSON&VECCHIO is an international company focused on the development and construction of golf courses and resorts. Headquartered in Scotland, the company also has offices in Catania, Italy and Gdansk, Poland.
