For many years we have consulted to Vern Marcom’s wonderful but too often under-rated sand belt gem – Spring Valley, which was recently reviewed in Golf Australia Magazine. Some alterations have been quite extensive but more often than not the work has involved repositioning a tee or perhaps subtly reworking a bunker or tee carry.
As with all our construction on the sand-belt we try hard to give the impression the new work have been there for a long time. Changes at the 5th were completed 12 months ago and show how even a small change such as widening a tee and making some changes to the carry can make a significant difference from the tee.
