CASE STUDY – PRACTICE ACADEMY

Hong Kong Golf & Tennis Academy, Hong Kong

The Hong Kong Golf and Tennis Academy, designed by Nicklaus Design and built by Southwest Greens Construction, boasts a state-of-the art three storey driving range and six hole course, including magnificent water features and a short game area all aimed at opening the game of golf up to the young and keen adult beginners.

The facility is located in the Sai Kung area of Hong Kong which is known for its stunning natural countryside and in addition to its unique golf facilities it also has overnight accommodation, dining, a fitness centre and other leisure pursuits. Southwest Greens Construction built the entire golf facility with its market-leading synthetic turf systems thus ensuring stunning playing conditions 24/7, 12 months of the year.

“We have a complete product range of synthetic turf systems covering every conceivable area on a golf course, whether it be fairways, rough, tees, bunker areas, cart paths, lake bank stabilization and, of course, the core product being our PRO System golf green surfaces explains Kevin Holinaty, president of Southwest Greens Construction.

In addition, the facility features full Academy facilities managed by Nicklaus Academies. “With the variety of synthetic turf surfaces from Southwest Greens, the Nicklaus Academy simulates the finest conditions possible – without the potential of damaging the environment with fertilisers and pesticides,” says Ted Simons, COO for Nicklaus Academies.

“We see it as a very exciting time for both of our companies, and another example of how perceptions are changing to the extent that clients are willing to look at synthetic solutions as real and truly viable options,” says Holinaty.

The beauty of the new facility will be its ability to change from driving range to six hole pitch and putt course depending on the need at the time, and it ensures that the needs of the Hong Kong golfers to hone their driving skills at key times in the day can be combined with the new breed of young golfer learning the intricacies of the game under the tutelage of high quality Nicklaus Academy coaches on perfect surfaces.

Designed by golf course architect Jim Wagner of Nicklaus Design, the development ensures that the very most is made out of the space available, while at the same time ensuring that new golfers as well as those more experienced are fulfilled by their experience.

“Our client has provided us with an extraordinary opportunity to showcase the relationships that Mr Nicklaus has forged over the years between Nicklaus Design, Nicklaus Academies and Southwest Greens,”
says Wagner.

“From early on in the project we had a vision to create a product that was not only unique, but pioneering in the development of golf. “The partnerships and relationships that exist within the Nicklaus Companies, as well as our client’s trust in our recommendations, have allowed us to create that product in an innovative and exciting fashion, incorporating a high level of teaching and operations with state of the art synthetic surfaces that eliminate fertilizers and pesticides and preserve an ideal ball reaction.”

“It is going to be a truly great place for sports lovers to gather, be trained and excel,” says Jay Liu, Kai Wai, of Hong Kong Golf and Tennis Academy.
