Scope of Works / Project Background:
The new Letchworth Academy comprises two interconnecting components; a Multi-shot range and a six hole are 3 course. These two components provide Letchworth Golf Club with one of the most advanced coaching and practice facilities in the south of England and the development went ahead with the full support of the English Golf Union, Hertfordshire County Ladies’ Golf Association.
The 300 yard long, Multi-Shot Range was opened in Summer 2015. This facility has a number of target greens built onto slopes on either side, with visible bunkers to provide the feel of a real course, and to make practicing all the more meaningful. The new range is truly ‘all weather’ and has both grass and matted tee areas as well as ten covered bays. The par 3 course provides players with a stimulating experience and for those learning the game, it is a natural step from shot making on the range to practice or play on the Academy course. The greens and tees have full herring-bone drainage system, are irrigated and have been constructed with a sand peat mixture on top of a shingle bed to provide the finest playing surfaces.
