Obituary for Doug Robertson

Doug worked with our golf course construction teamfor many years and was responsible for all thevery detailed and wonderful shaping on both ourgolf courses. He was renowned for his talent andskill with diggers shaping the landscape andcontouring many golf courses throughout Britain.

Doug worked on the construction of our 18 holecourse and many of you will also have met him andDan when they were working on the design andconstruction of the Blenheim 9 Hole course in2003. Doug always had time for a chat and answeredso many people's questions on design andconstruction of a golf course.

He will be sadly missed but always remembered, sotake a minute the next time you are out on thegolf course to have a look around and take in someof the beautiful contours that Doug will havecreated. Below is a couple of images of thecontours on the main course.
