Whitehaven Golf Course – Landscape Design

Whitehaven Golf Course – Landscape Design

Galpin Landscape Architecture designed a new embankment to the southern edge of the golf course and alongside Red Lonning road. The embankment was designed to undulate naturally and provides screening to the golf course. The embankment will also be planted with 2,000 trees, wildflower meadows, native hedgerows which will enhance the aesthetic on both sides of the bank and also provide new habitat for local wildlife. Planting shrubs at the entrance will further improve the user experience, giving a good impression to customers using the golf course or the extensive clubhouse facilities.
