Swan Golf Designs has been appointed by Boyce Hill Golf & Country Club in Essex, England to conduct a detailed audit of their bunkering and to make recommendations for its improvement as part of a long-term renovation project.

Founded by a group of members from nearby Leigh Park Golf Club, golf was first played at Boyce Hill in 1922 on a layout designed by local professional F.G. “Joe” Steel. However, the course was redesigned by James Braid just three years later, with the reconstruction carried out by Taylor & Hawtree Ltd. The course has remained largely the same since, with only a few new tees and bunkers added over the years. Today, measuring just over 6000 yards, the course represents a stiff challenge to those looking to match the par score of 68.

Boyce Hill is now set to become the latest Braid designed golf course to be renovated under the guidance and supervision of Swan Golf Designs, joining a long list that includes The Downs Course at Goodwood, Tyrrells Wood Golf Club and Kingswood Golf & Country Club.

With the survey of the course already complete, the team at SGD is analysing the course and relevant details before formulating their recommendations.
