Club:
Chesfield Downs Golf Club, Jacks Hill, Graveley, Nr Stevenage, Hertfordshire, SG4 7EQ

Location:
Chesfield Downs Golf Club is located about a mile and a half north of the village of Graveley on the B197 close to junctions 8 and 9 of the A1 (M) in Hertfordshire.

Site Size:
5.5 Hectares (13.59 Acres)

Scope of Works:
Remodel the existing driving range and short game practice facility. The remodelling will involve new contouring derived from excavated soils and additional landscaping.

Site Description:
Chesfield Downs Golf Club, designed by Jonathon Gaunt, was built in the early 1990’s on approximately 90 acres of chalk downland. The facility compromises an 18 hole par 71 ‘Championship Standard’ golf course (6646 yards), a 9 hole par 3 course and a 24 bay floodlit driving range with a short game practice area.

Project Key Points:

  • Improved dispersement of surface water from the driving range
  • Improved ball containment to driving range without need for containment netting
  • Better containment of light straying from the range onto the adjacent residential property
  • Improved safety between driving range and golf course
  • Improved opportunities for flora and fauna
  • Creation of areas of biodiversity
  • Increased visitor numbers
  • Increased financial profitability
