A modest 9-hole minigolf course with added site contouring, rocks and planting in north west Leicestershire.
The local authority was seeking to provide a new leisure facility for the community and turned to us for the design and build of this minigolf course. We were asked to keep the layout fairly simple and neutral, and for it to sympathise with the facilities around it which include a fishing lake and a golf course.
We visited the site to map and plan out the course. Using the existing topography, we produced a layout that would incorporate slopes and banks on all but 3 of the holes. Due to the existence of sub-surface rubble a decision was made to use shuttering ply to create the borders instead of kerbstones.
After commencing site works the course began to take shape quite quickly. Earth mounds were created around the tracks; hillocks and depressions were formed; limestone rocks and attractive planting were used to create the course features. Then after a break over the winter we returned to prime the bases and fit our exclusive UV-stable felt.
We put the finishing touches to the course in Spring 2008. Take a look at the photos in the gallery to the right. Unfortunately, due to limited marketing by the council as many geese now visit the course as do humans. Nevertheless, it is a nice tranquil site in a picturesque corner of the midlands.
