Pierson’s progress

8.08am 18th January 2008 - People

Brian D Pierson has now completed the third nine hole course at the original Donald Steel designed Chateau des Vigiers Golf and Country Club in the Dordoyne.

Having worked with Donald for over 30 years it was good that the “old team” were together again following Donald’s hectic year as President of the E.G.U. Donald is now back to full time designing with two projects in America and several more in the UK & mainland Europe.

Brian Pierson has been involved with the construction or alteration of over 260 golf courses around the world, including alteration at most of the Open Championship venues. With over 40 years in construction Brian is now concentrating more on project management and has several projects in the rapidly expanding new European market.

One team has just returned from Bulgaria, where they were putting the finishing touches to a Gary Player Signature course on the Black Sea, and in the last few days Brian has been signed up to project manage a new development in Spain.

With a commission to project manage the first golf course ever in Macedonia, Brian will be working with Jonathan Gaunt who has designed this exciting 27 hole course, scheduled to start spring ‘08. It is an adventure that is sure to prove an exciting challenge.

On the home front, with the increasing demand for water harvesting, several reservoir construction contracts are on the books and with further projects starting in Croatia and Romania 2008 is going to be “one hectic year” says Brian.
