Whitecraigs Golf Club - 14th Hole Redesign

Thursday 20th July 2017

This project was a significant undertaking for both the club and KimberGlen. Standing on the 14th tee the golfer used to be faced with an overgrown steep slope that was directly in the landing zone for average golfers.  This resulted in many members avoiding playing both this hole and the next hole which the club deemed as a huge compromise that needed to be addressed.  KimberGlen was challenged to find a way to make this tee shot easier for average golfers and make the walk up to the main part of the fairway much less severe so that all the members could enjoy playing the hole. 

The work included full construction and management of the project. Over a 5 week period the KimberGlen team completely reshaped the sheer face pushing material back towards the tee to create a continuous fairway that the golfers can now play to and walk up. The finished product has been a big success for the club and they have already begun to see the value of this work with more members now enjoying an 18 hole experience again.

The short video below highlights the process we went through to create the new hole.
