Enhancements to the 12th hole
Towens supported the golf club in its applications for planning and waste recovery permissions allowing for the importation of non-hazardous soil to reprofile the existing fairway and formation of a new dune.
Burnham and Berrow golf course is a top rated links course situated within Berrow Dunes SSSI. There was a requirement from the club to make substantial improvements to the 12th hole. The club employed international golf course achitects Mackenzie & Ebert to design the improvements to the hole. Towens worked closely with the club in obtaining planning permission and the required environmental permits.
We managed the project, performing the works with the course staying open the whole time. The native organic plant species and sand were set aside for reinstatement after the clean naturally occurring soils were imported to create the specified dune shapes which were then stabilised with Marram grass plugs.
