If you already have land, a description of it, maps, photographs and even arranging a visit for a site analysis will allow you to obtain valuable specific information about its suitability for a Golf Course. Other important questions can be how long is it likely to take until you could open the Course to start collecting fees, who is likely to play your Course, what kind of a clubhouse should you have, what maps of the site are required for planning the Course and other critical questions.

  5.  WHAT IS A GOLF DRIVING RANGE?

    Golf Driving Range in simple terms is a practice area for golfers. Its a facility which is used by new comers to learn the game and by golfers to enhance their playing abilities.

    No matter what level of Golf one plays, it’s very important to practice on the driving range.

    A driving range is developed so that a beginner or a low handicap player, can have enough privacy and personal space to have a practice session. For this, there are various types of separators are used make up of products such as plastic, wood or steel. In addition, there are distance markers to have a better vision of the distance a ball travels. The markers are installed at different yards such a 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 etc.

    Basically, a driving range is a rectangular piece of land {(50-100 m) Width X (200-300 m) Length} set away to practice the game by hitting Golf Balls to targets of various distances. Driving Ranges can exist as stand-alone facilities, or in conjunction with practice holes or a course which allows players to progress to real golf. One doesn't have take effort in carrying balls every time one visits a driving range. The club or the course provides the ball to be used in practicing session at a reasonable charge for a bucket of balls (50/100 balls per bucket).

    A practice Putting Green and Chipping Green with a bunker are also an integral part of a Driving Ranges.

  6.  WHY 9 HOLE EXECUTIVE GOLF COURSE?

    •  Less land requirement, suits the land availability for the project.
    • Executive Golf Courses consume far less water than a normal Course.
    • Low cost of construction
    • Most Golfers struggle to learn the game – playing a Nine Hole Short Course is beginner friendly and much enjoyable.
    • Distance is not a factor on Executive Courses. Hence this executive course will encourage

      Beginners
    Golf for ladies
    Seniors
    Kids

    •  Executive Courses enable the completion of one game of Golf in 1 hour as opposed to 4-5 hours for a game on an 18 hole full length Course.
    • Less maintenance expenses.
  7.  WHAT IS A PITCH & PUTT COURSE?

    The smallest golf courses are called pitch & putt courses. These have tee shots of limited length. The greens on many are small and unimaginatively shaped. Their tees are also usually tiny. They can effectively serve beginning golfers and therefore continue to generate participants in golf.

    Fields are the easiest sites to construct and maintain golf courses on. These permit long runs by equipment in preparing for grassing, mowing and treating the grass in other needed ways. Open spaces receive maximum sunlight, are most efficient to irrigate and, if necessary, handiest to install drainage on. These are all best for growing good grass, so cost-wise the most efficient situation for a golf course.

    Greens are the most expensive areas of a golf course to construct. Tees are next. Fairways are far less expensive. A pitch and putt course entirely on a fairway would be a whole lot cheaper than one including the special building of greens and tees. As mentioned, fairways are most economical in a field.

    No one, beginner or experienced golfer, should think that a pitch & putt course is going to be like a regular golf course or even a commonly seen pitch and putt course. Its purpose is to be a small, inexpensive and comfortable place for beginners to start learning and understanding what golf is about. If its players are “turned on” by what they experience and want to “stay with golf”, after they’d gained some playing competence they could move on to conventional big golf courses.
