Construction of new golf course and associated landscaping

MJ Abbott secured the golf course construction work following submission of a competitive tender. Additional hotel and landscaping work was negotiated during the course of the contract directly with the client.

The course was designed by Kyle Phillips.

The scope of work included:

  • Construction of 18 hole golf course, driving range and practice facility to full USGA specification from site clearance through to preparation and seeding
  • Design and installation of primary drainage and automatic irrigation system following final shaping of earthworks
  • Construction of cart path system around the golf course and estate
  • Construction of landscape within the walled garden including swimming pool earthworks, artificial tennis court, croquet lawn and later beach volley ball court
  • Construction of natural grass football pitch complete with drainage and irrigation
  • Formal lawns and landscape areas within hotel grounds.

Christopher Andrews, Director of Ralph Trustees Limited, commented: "Working with Kyle and the team from Abbotts was a real pleasure and I am very proud of what we have created together. Without Abbotts and their willingness to appproach all aspects of the project with energy, enthusiasm and efficiency we would not have the fantastic venue that exists today."

In subsequent years MJ Abbott has carried out additional works at The Grove and extensive landscaping works at The Runnymede Hotel, which is in the same ownership.
