The renowned golf course architects, Mackenzie & Ebert scooped the further improvements to key holes on Prince’s Golf Club‘s Himalayas and Shore nines, the works started in November 2020. It will be completed when the club reopens on March 29th, 2021.
In 2018, Mackenzie & Ebert completed the ‘reimagination’ of the Himalayas nine. Since then, significant course improvement works have been completed on both the Shore and Dunes nines leading up to the opening of the signature new par-3, the final checkpoint in the club’s master development plan.
Central elements of the program include the establishment of a surrounding dune to the right of the 9th Himalayas, which will encircle a green that is set to be significantly enlarged due to the fact it will be blended into the recently upgraded largescale putting green to the clubhouse’s rear.
13 of the holes on the property will be enhanced at some level, with other particularly notable alterations including the creation of significant sand scrapes to border the 1st Shore and the 7th Himalayas.
- The 2nd Shore will be altered dramatically with the removal of scrub vegetation to the left of the hole,
- the extension of the fairway’s width, the reinstatement of a large approach bunker, and finally,
- the creation of new open sand scrapes to the right of the approach split by a grass path towards the 3rd tee.
