A GOLF course will undergo winter refurbishment to complete the overhaul of the course.

Stoke Park Country Club has announced that holes 10 to 18 of its Alison golf course will be renovated from November.

It follows the work done to the first nine holes on the Colt course last winter, and will see every bunker renovated, with the addition of new tees and a reworking of the water features on holes 12 and 17.

Stoke Park’s director of golf, Stuart Collier, said: “When we began the renovation last year it was always a three-year plan, with one of each of the nine holes being refurbished each winter. The work on the Colt course has been a spectacular success and we’re now looking to bring the second nine holes in line with the first, both in terms of design, consistency and playability.

“Additionally, we’re looking to create a truly world-class finish on holes 16 to 18, without losing the feel and aesthetic that Harry Colt was kind enough to leave us. And, in doing that, we need to also ensure the course can be played and enjoyed by golfers of all levels.

“We achieved that aim on the Colt nine and firmly believe we will, ultimately, attain the same high level of design aesthetic and playability on the Alison, to ensure the course is at peak condition for the 21st century golfer.”

The Alison course will be closed until the spring, but members and visitors can combine the nine holes of the Colt course with nine from the Lane Jackson to complete an 18 hole round.
