Renovating Ripon

8.21am 31st October 2008 - Courses

Ripon City Golf Club is marking its centenary by employing Swan Golf Designs to redesign and possibly extend elements of the 18-hole golf course.

Founded in 1908 the course will undergo something of a transformation; new teeing areas, bunkers and greens are all possibilities as well as improvements to the course layout.

The plans have been drawn up by Swan Golf Designs, international golf course architects; respected for their responsible and natural approach to course design.

The project has now physically commenced with work on the bunkers around the sixth and fourteenth greens. Some additional landscaping will take place through the winter this will mainly be in the form of tree removal and thinning.

With the course positioned above the city of Ripon, Howard Swan and his team are certain to take the opportunity to creatively frame the views from the fairways as they have in other projects they have completed.

The project is expected to take up to ten years to complete.
