Golf Master Planning

Diva Roza Country Estate - Golf Development Project Bulgaria - by Roger Jones Golf DesignThe Master Plan is probably the most significant plan of any golf, and or golf-related development. It is the plan which determines the final siting and layout of the component parts of a development, and is quite often the plan used to obtain statutory permission for the project, having had scaled golf course details and features added to the earlier, simpler, concept design plan.
The project's buildings architects and engineers should be involved in the planning of buildings, roads, and other infrastructural elements, and all of these features come together as a coherent Master Plan.

The completion of the Master Plan also enables cost estimators [quantity surveyors] to produce more detailed cost estimates, which in turn can be used to update the financial section of a commercial feasibility study, and or enable developers to secure the necessary finance or investment to carry out the proposed development.

When produced in full colour, master plans are the first easily understood graphical representation of the proposed development. The plan can then be used for a variety of purposes including informing community or government officials, presenting to investors or financial institutions, and many other applications.

Depending on the scope of the project, marketing and public relations activities may also begin upon completion of the master plan in order to start creating public awareness of the forthcoming development and its component parts, as well as initiating early sales campaigns.

When to get RJGD involved in the Master Plan

In a well organised project the Master Plan is a collaborative work of the golf course designer, master plan architect, buildings architect, engineer, environmental consultant and other specialists.

At other times, as golf courses designers, we are allocated areas of the development site in which to 'fit' the golf course. This approach usually misses the opportunity to properly integrate all of the relevant structural and infrastructural components, and in the case of residential development, misses the opportunity to maximise the number of premium-value golf view properties.

In preference, on other projects where Roger Jones Golf Design is the 'lead' consultant, we can provide a concept Master Plan that optimises the development potential of the site both in golf terms and in terms of the location of the non-golf components. The input of other project specialists then validates the preliminary work of RJGD and adds detail to the non-golf components.
