As one of the oldest courses in Hampshire, Alresford Golf Club is steeped in history and heritage.
The stunning 18-hole course is located close to the South Downs and renowned for fantastic facilities, including a free-draining course and a modern clubhouse with an incredible view of the 18th hole.
To add to their already impressive offering, Alresford Golf Club were looking to enhance their outdoor patio space by creating a sheltered al-fresco dining that overlooked the 18th green and allowed golfers, members and visitors to sample refreshments while taking in the surroundings.
As the course is played on throughout the year, thanks to the drainage capabilities, the patio area also needed to be a functional space that could withstand the elements and be enjoyed whatever the weather.
Furthermore, ensuring the view of the course from inside the clubhouse was not restricted was also of paramount importance.
Working closely with Alresford Golf Club following our free, on site no obligation survey, we decided our manual Liberta Retractable Roof systems would be ideal for their space.
Rather than one large system covering the whole patio, we designed, manufactured and installed six smaller Liberta Retractable Roof structures to allow occupants underneath each to control whether they required shelter or not. This was a key feature for the golf club.
Each of the systems were measured precisely to ensure the posts did not obstruct the view from inside the clubhouse and, at 5.5m x 3m, were situated adjacent to the brick walls.
When in use, the systems will also reduce the amount of glare entering the clubhouse and therefore improve the building’s energy efficiency and regulate the temperature inside.
From the no obligation survey through to installation, the project was completed snag free and ensured the patio area was ready for what will be a busy summer period for Alresford Golf Club.
The General Manager, David Maskery, said:
The retractable systems have completed our recent clubhouse refurbishment and now complement our patio area, providing controllable shaded areas for those who prefer not to sit in full sun. Easy to operate and unobtrusive, the pergola now feels like an additional ‘outdoor room’ and has allowed us to increase our patio seating capacity. No more fighting over parasols!
