Computer Design

Graham Marsh Golf Design use the latest computer aided drafting and engineering software to stay at the fore front of the Golf Design Industry.

We are committed to researching and developing technical solutions that allow increased efficiency and provide tangible benefits to each Golf Course Development and Client.

Improvements in CAD systems have enabled us to generate highly accurate terrain models that can be quantified and then constructed with the minimal impact to the adjoining natural landforms.

Computer Design Benefits

Graham Marsh Golf Design utilise the latest technology to assist in the design and construction process. The use of 3D modeling software, allows hand produced designs that are digitised into the computer, to be viewed from any angle or elevation. This can be very helpful as a design aid to allow accurate visualisation of any design prior to construction.

Latest developments have allowed a computer model of the course to be "constructed" and the golf hole "played" as a computer game. This same technology can also provide the client group with pre-construction marketing images, either of feature holes or golf vistas of the proposed course, enabling both potential members and real estate purchasers to view tangible evidence of the end product.

Upon request computer images of the designed golf course are prepared for marketing use.

GPS/ATS Golf Course Design Technology

A further benefit to the client is the capacity of computer technology to accurately determine on-site earthworks. Refinements, where appropriate, can be easily made to the design in order to control earthworks and construction costs.

Recently, the introduction of Machine Control Technology, which utilises information gathered from Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Advanced Tracking Systems (ATS) has greatly altered the way golf courses are constructed.

Design files are converted into a proprietary data format and placed on a small computer memory card that is then inserted into the Machine Guidance system. The on board computer reads the data and combines this with information gained from the GPS or ATS systems. The continuous signal combined with the computer system allows for incredible control and very high levels of construction accuracy.

This has now a proven record of providing each client with a more efficient and controlled method of Golf Course construction.
