Playing and studying the great links of Great Britain and Ireland is an essential part of what we do, but one of the great privileges and most formidable challenges is being invited to carry out work on them. Over the years, we have advised upon 27 of Golf World's Top 50 courses, including 8 of the 10 Open Championship venues - Royal Lytham and St Annes, Royal St. George's, Royal Troon, Royal Liverpool, Royal Birkdale, Carnoustie, Turnberry and Royal Portrush. We are currently advising 7 of the 10 Open venues.
We carried out all of the changes to the Ailsa Course at Turnberry in preparation for The Open in 2009 and that continued with the significant adjustments to the Ailsa Course commissioned by Turnberry's new owner, Mr. Donald Trump.
Making the Dunluce Course at Royal Portrush ready for The Open has been another major project with two new holes added to the layout to replace the old 17th and 18th which will house the large entrance spectator village.
We are also currently advising Royal St. George's, Royal Lytham and St Annes, and Royal Troon having previously made adjustments for the 2011, 2012 and 2016 Opens staged at these venues and also Carnoustie, where some adjustments have been implemented for the 2018 Open and Royal Liverpool.
