Sometimes it is good to be above par. Contract Energy Management has just completed a project to install two Alfa Laval AquaFirst units and an Alfa Laval Buffer Vessel with dosing post plus upgraded controls to provide hot water to the members of this prestigious golf course in Surrey.
St George’s Hill is a golfing gem. Each hole, of which there are three loops of nine, is memorable and individual in character, with heather, silver birch and stately Scots pine – the fairways are undulating and follow the natural contours of the land. The original concept of the course and estate was unique. It was the first development of a golf course being constructed with the intention of building luxury houses adjacent to the fairways. W G Tarrant, a local builder, had the foresight to see an opportunity when the land became available in 1911.
Having acquired it, he enlisted the services of Harry Colt, the most prolific golf architect of his generation, to design the course. And so St George’s Hill was born, being ready for play in October 1913.
Undoubtedly Colt was a genius, one of the great, if not the greatest golf architect of all time and it has been suggested that St George’s Hill is his masterpiece.
The Clubhouse stands on the highest point of the course affording wonderful panoramic views of the opening and closing holes, and no doubt providing every golfer with a lasting memory of this magnificent course.
