- Revival of original design intent and style through research, including the study of historical imagery and original design plans
- Enhanced playability for the modern game, taking into account improvements in playing equipment
Faldo Design was asked to develop ideas to re-establish definition and strategy into an iconic Harry Colt course and restore elements of its original design. Studies of historic imagery and the original design plan were undertaken which allowed for detailed evaluation of bunker styles and course strategy, whilst on-site analysis uncovered long-disused bunkers, tees and green sites.
Appraisal of the existing course layout and comparison with the original design enabled the team to upgrade bunker styles and hole strategies to reflect modern play. Conceptual plans were developed and design proposals were presented to the Club. Restoration work is due to commence in 2019.
