Cottingham Parks appointed ACA for a golf club redevelopment masterplan, including the refurbishment and extension of existing facilities.
Primarily, the brief was to design a golf club redevelopment masterplan that allows for future expansion. This includes maximising the views over the golf course from the Club lounges, dining area and terrace.
Also, the aim was to provide scope to develop full hotel facilities in the future.
The Design Solution
Firstly, the masterplan includes a flexible function/events space for large events or smaller meetings.
Additionally the design includes an outdoor events space for nice weather.
Secondly, the design provides additional luxury lodges for future expansion.
Thirdly, the masterplan includes an additional “exclusive” Spa to run alongside the health club for spa breaks.
Finally, there is provision for an additional car park with a drop off point.
Principally, ACA had to carefully consider a viable phased development, avoiding business interruption and disruption during construction stages.
The extension to the existing building provides a larger golf shop and golf lockers on the ground floor.
Moreover, the first floor extension providers a restaurant terrace, where building users can enjoy the view onto the golf course.
In addition, ACA carefully selected external building materials to match the existing and to create a contemporary look.
The landscape design accommodates outside wedding ceremonies, providing a pond with a fountain, seating and an alter with a pergola.
Furthermore, the event lawn provides a view onto the golf course, with beautiful plants screening off the car park.
