Balcarrick Golf Club, Dublin, Ireland
Balcarrick GC is a member-owned course, situated close to the estuary in North Co. Dublin.
Roger Jones Golf Design was contracted to re-model and re-style the 18-hole course to give it a definable identity, and at the same time address a number of issues affecting the quality, playability and commercial success of the club.
The agreed scheme included the re-building of all teeing areas, re-shaping of all bunkers and green surrounds, the creation of new water features and extension of others, the addition of fairway mounding on certain holes to give definition to fairways, and an extensive shrub planting scheme. The wild grasses in and around the existing water features have been preserved and given the opportunity to thrive, contributing to the new and defined style of the course.
Throughout the duration of the consruction work the course stayed open for play, and was re-launched officially in June 2008.
Since re-launch the members have a renewed pride and energy for their club, and at the same time have seen a steady but encouraging increase in the number of, and revenue derived from, visitor green fees.
The project was an International finalist in the Renovation of the Year 2008
