Boundary Lakes Golf Course at the Ageas International Cricket Stadium, Hampshire
Weller Designs was delighted to announce the opening of its prestigious project and the UK’s newest golf course, Boundary Lakes Golf Course in July 2017. The 18-hole championship course is set against the background of The Ageas Bowl, Hampshire Cricket’s home in Southampton and alongside the new five-star destination hotel.
The par 69 parkland course, complete with USGA standard greens and eye-catching feature lakes, has cutting-edge facilities that include practice ranges and a golf pod.
Work has been ongoing at the site for over five years.
The Ageas Bowl chief executive, David Mann said: “This was a major engineering achievement and we have been working hard on this project for a number of years. I would particularly like to thank the course architect Bruce Weller for his design input.”
The key to the scheme was the gaining of planning permission for the importation of a considerable quantity of recovered inert soil enabling the Ageas Bowl not only to create a high-quality golf course but to have it financed at no cost.
The course is a fascinating combination of regenerated heathland to the south, mature oak parkland in the central section and a more formal styling to the north.
This will be a stunning golf course that will add considerably to the destination hotel and spa facilities we are developing at this nationally and internationally recognised sporting venue.Glenn Delve MD - Ageas Bowl Cricket Stadium
