Fulwell Golf Club in Middlesex has unveiled its new-look layout to members and visitors following a bunker renovation project.

“Fulwell Golf Club is the proud owner of a reinvigorated course that not only lays down a more thorough challenge to today’s breed of long hitters, but also revives the visual styling and shape of its bunkers of old, with more than a passing tribute to the rugged-edged bunkering from Alister MacKenzie’s input in the 1920s,” said a spokesman.

“Some bunkers have been removed, others repositioned, and all renovated and restyled to ensure consistency of design and playing surfaces throughout. Some of the most significant changes to fairway bunkering have taken place on the third, fourth and eighth holes, with bunkers left and right of the eighth fairway now demanding a high degree of accuracy from anyone attempting to take the hole on.

“Around the greens, some of the most visually striking changes have been to the sixth and ninth holes, both already very attractive par threes near the clubhouse that are now even prettier.”

“The membership is delighted with the changes carried out to ensure that our bunkers are now consistent throughout and perfectly positioned for modern driving distances,” commented club secretary, Murray Cook.

“We are delighted that our bunkering now meets the high standards we set for our other playing surfaces. We are convinced that our significant investment, along with our hard-working greenstaff, led by our Master Greenkeeper, Sam Evans, will enable us to cement our position as one of the premier clubs in the London area while helping us to attract more members and visitors as our reputation continues to grow.”
