Cirencester GC – phase 3 winter works

The phase 3 works at Cirencester GC were done in early Jan 2023 and involved the renovation of Hole 7. The hole is a medium-length par 4 oriented South-West against the direction of the prevailing wind. We worked on the teeing area, the two tee boxes were reshaped into a wider tee box realigned for a better view of the hole. 

The blind right-hand side fairway bunker – 220m from the back tee – was reshaped as broken ground. The green was guarded by two greenside bunkers. The one on the left – barely visible – was reshaped as a natural looking grassy swale. The front-right greenside bunker was big and in poor condition, that was reshaped smaller in size. We extended the green to the front to bring back some lost pin positions. Nice movement rear of green was maintained – maybe the original Braid’s touch.
