Odense GC appoints SVV to full masterplan

Odense might be most known for being the birthplace of the world famous author Hans Christian Andersen, but it is also home to Odense Golf Club, which is situated only a few kilometers from Odense city center. The club has a rich history and the course has hosted several big events such as the European Championship. The facility includes an 18 hole course and an additional 9 hole course.

"A masterplan for a club such as Odense Golf Club is a fantastic project" says Philip Spogárd, Principal Golf Course Architect of Spogárd & Vandervaart Golf Course Architects. "There is a special atmosphere in this place. It is a true parkland course - something many aspire to be, but few manage to pull off. The routing works well and explores the site and the mature trees help to set the scene. We hope to optimise the course in terms of its strategy and look forward to designing new and more exiting greens as the current greens are in need of renovation".

The existing greens are struggling and the project seeks to replace the greens on the 18 hole course with USGA greens suitable for the modern game.
