However, choosing a site with natural vegetation included in the project, you can significantly save money. Some types of plantings may affect the requirements for the size of the site. For example, in order for the line of passage of the holes to be between the plantings, they are left untouched. This type of restriction involves a large area of land.
In any case, before making any serious financial investments, the designer should consult a qualified Golf architect to minimize the risks of construction losses.

The location of the clubhouse is one of the most important stages in the Golf course design process.
