18th Hole Redesign
27th November 2018
Most who have played the course recently will be aware of the changes and clearing that have taken place on the right of the 18th hole. We are now able to confirm the work planned.
As the first part of a programme of course improvement construction has started on a project to realign the 18th hole at Kingfishers (formerly Cretingham Golf Club). Having worked alongside William Swan of Swan Golf Designs over the last year to prepare a long-term development plan, Kingfishers has now appointed Profusion Environmental to implement the initial phase.
The works will include a relocated and enlarged white, yellow and red tees as well as a new pond on the carry to create an additional challenge for golfers on the finishing hole. The new 18th will become a 356 yard par-4 from the white markers, 342 yards from the yellows and 296 yards from the reds, adding 14, 10 and 16 yards to the respective cards.
As part of the project the driving range will be realigned to create a straighter boundary incorporating the existing 18th tee and a larger outfield. This adjustment will create a safer practice area and more space for the use of drivers and woods.
