It's that time of year again! Our 2018 Review is ready for viewing. It has been a whirlwind year, and an exciting 2019 lies ahead of us with work at Hirono starting next week and the small matter of The Open at Royal Portrush in July!! Follow the link in our bio and have a flick through the review. Enjoy!
Our Christmas present to everyone this year is yet more St Andrews drone spam! How can you not be inspired by The Old on a glorious sunny evening, or any evening for that matter!? 📷 by our very own Chris @elevatedoverview
The past two winters have seen a number of sandy waste areas and dune slacks opened up on the New Course @thehomeofgolf where dense course growth was previously seen. Great landscape features as well as valuable habitat. The fine shaping work of Jaime O'Reilly comes to life under the low evening sun of a Scottish winter. 📷 by @elevatedoverview
A sneak peak of the redesigned short game area at @thehomeofgolf soon after it was turfed earlier this month. 4 greens shaped in total with the original Colt 2nd green of the Eden remaining untouched (left side of photo). 📷 by @elevatedoverview
New short game facility at @rcpgolfclub nearing completion. Replicating those world renowned Cinque Ports greens and green surrounds has been a lot of fun. @1stgolf on the shaping and @jamesbledge finishing off the greens.
Another strong par 3 at Royal Wimbledon is the 8th - a good example of how a long 3 can be challenging but very playable. Last winter we worked on improving the general view of the hole by rerouting the pathway and shaping the carry. This was left largely as gravel to encourage heather species to grow. The drought has made this challenging, but patience is key!
Developments on the 17th at Royal Wimbledon. Tree clearance on the hillside has made a big impact on the hole. Front of the green has been softened slightly to increase pinnable areas and to get the water moving the right way. Bunkers revamped too.
South America Visit complete, onto UK winter construction work. Can anyone name today's destination??
Good day spent at Club El Rodeo, Medellin - aka, the Lossiemouth of South America..
Half way through another tour of South America and we had the opportunity to be part of the @golfaag maintenance conference. Always good to share our own stories as well as learn from others, especially when it comes to the complex world of warm season grasses #alwayslearning. Onwards to Lima!
This is what it's all about and what a way to finish our trip for the Askernish Open - the one-club challenge at the end of play. Just so happens it was won by a certain Martin Ebert with a birdie 4 on the 1st hole. 3 wood the club of choice. Fantastic effort by all involved and one of the best golfing experiences around.
Always a pleasure being back at Askernish. Golf in its purest form. Mackenzie & Ebert Quaich tomorrow followed by the Askernish Open on Saturday. Despite the drought this summer, the course is in fantastic condition. Good luck to all taking part, and for those not here make sure you get it in your diaries for next year!
No prizes for guessing where we are today. Mourne Mountains looking moody under the clouds, Clubhouse popping above the dunes. This place never gets boring.. ________ #hafephotocomp
A stunning photo of the new 8th green at @royalportrushgolfclub captured by @davidcannongolfphoto, always finding the best angles! July 2019 can't come soon enough.. __________ #theopen #theopen2019 #portrush #golfcoursearchitecture #beautifulgolfcourses #northernireland

It was great to be a part of the Captain's Charity Day at @effinghamgolfclub earlier this week to to raise money for @sohkcharity and to celebrate the opening of the course following its renovation. A fabulous Colt routing that is finally making the most of its potential.
We are extremely excited and proud to announce that we have been appointed to advise Hirono Golf Club on the restoration of their fantastic Charles Hugh Alison designed course. Read more by following the link in our profile. While you are there, why not have a look around our new website also!
A lovely touch by Princes featuring what must be one of the best stories in golf of the famous Laddie Lucas. #NewHims
On our way to the opening of the reinvigorated Himalayas 9 at Princes. After a day of torrential rain, a sigh of relief that the sun is shining! Should be a good day.
