DESIGNING GOLF AREAS FOR YOUR HOME
INTERVIEW WITH LOUIE BREHM FROM THE GOLF COMPANY
What services do The Golf Company offer and how is your team made up?
The Golf Company is a full service golf construction company that focuses its attention equally on two distinct sectors: the residential sector where we build and create private golf areas for residential homes, and the commercial sector which comprises golf courses and golf practice facilities. After over 10 years in the industry we have developed a unique group of talented industry experts who share our vision for growing the game of golf. Our team is comprised of golf architects, professional tour coaches and certified PGA professionals, as well as championship course and synthetic constructors. Equally as important are our amazing team of installers who work hand in hand with the aforementioned group. They are true specialists and bring years of experience and expertise in the installation of synthetic turf surfaces for golf. Our team is not only highly qualified and trained, but collectively we aspire to improve. This I believe is the signature of our success and the reason why we have so many satisfied customers. We are fortunate to say that golf has brought us together: our passion is golf, our love is golf. Collectively we are 100 per cent dedicated to growing the game of golf. The diversity of our team is one of the factors that sets us apart in the golf industry.
Tell us about where you have carried out some of your projects…
We have actually been very fortunate over the years to have installed numerous projects around the world. My team and I have collaborated on two separate nine-hole courses in France. We have also worked on a very unique six-hole practice facility designed by Nicklaus Design in Hong Kong, a three-hole practice facility in the Italian Alps, several Teeline projects in Dubai and private projects for the royal family of Morocco, as well as many projects both residential and commercial in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, The Netherlands and Russia. Here in Spain, we have designed and built projects for the Madrid and Spanish Golf Federations, as well as many of the most prestigious clubs across the country, including Finca Cortesín, Las Brisas, Golf La Moraleja, El RACE, Real Club de Golf de Sevilla, Pineda… On a residential level we have been fortunate enough to work with a very wide spectrum of clients. They range from passionate golfers looking to practise at home, aspiring pros playing with national teams and leading international business figures with private golf holes in country properties to top global pro golfers.
You have installed many putting greens for residential homes. Tell us more about how you go about doing this…
We begin by working directly with the client to meet his or her personal desires and needs. Depending on the scope of the project, we incorporate as many technical aspects to the design as necessary to allow the client to have a true short game practice area in their home. We only work with the highest quality synthetic materials. This guarantees unsurpassed quality, a natural appearance and, most importantly, the most realistic golf experience with synthetic grass. Our outdoor and indoor putting greens are made with the highest quality artificial turf in the industry, and are designed to meet the most demanding player expectations. Whether we are building a simple putting green or a complex golf hole, our focus once again is based on the game, performance of the product and customer satisfaction. This means quality designs, where ball reception and true ball roll are achieved to satisfy golfers of all levels. The Golf Company greens are built for golfers by golfers.
How do you set about planning a commercial golf facility?
We provide a complete synthetic golf installation package, from practice facilities to full courses. This includes design, preparation and planning, right up to the completed installation. Our experts assist in assessing the scope
of the project, the land and location, and the viability of a facility and its capability to meet the needs of amateur and professional golfers alike. We project manage the complete golf course or facility, from construction start to finish. Our experts take the lead in providing modern-day options to the everevolving world of golf course construction. This also includes the integration and building of natural areas designed to work and function seamlessly with our synthetic products. Our focus, once again, is based on the game, the performance of the product, and the satisfaction of the end user.
The Golf Company’s new presence on the Costa del Sol enables the industry and passionate golfers alike to benefit from our more than 10 years of experience dedicated to building the highest quality synthetic golf surfaces.
