Kimber Golf The Castle

Paul led the design team to transform a piece of flat farmland into the wild rugged landscape within which the Castle Course now sits.

The Castle

Commissioned in 2003 to design the first championship course at the home of golf for over 100 years. Paul led the design team to deploy their philosophy of creating a course that would appear to have been found rather than designed.

Between them the team transformed a piece of flat farmland into the wild rugged landscape within which the Castle Course now sits. In this way the new course has an instant character and feels as though it is played through the landscape rather than has been imposed upon it.

Paul was on site every day for two years, both designing and managing the construction team. Spending this amount of time on site allowed the team to form a close working relationship with the shapers. Each hole became an adventure initially conceived in a ‘sand box’ whereby each hole and idea could quickly be modelled in the sand before being built.

Opening in the Summer of 2008 the resulting course has already received many accolades including ‘best new course’ from Golf Magazine and ranked 67 in the Top 100 UK golf courses by Golf World.
