David Williams Golf Design and D. J. Russell Re-unite on Croatia Project
January 8th, 2012
Following their successful co-operation in the design of the acclaimed two courses at Archerfield Links adjacent to Muirfield Golf Club in Scotland, DWGD and Senior Tour Professional David J. Russell have re-united in the design of a 36 hole layout on the Adriatic island of Lastovo off the coast of Croatia.
Part of an overall resort, housing and marina complex, the two courses are sited on a dramatic coastline, with almost all holes offering magnificent views over the Adriatic itself. The island itself, formerly containing a major military base, is the southernmost island in the chain off the former Yugoslav coast, and is therefore the last island visited when heading down towards the Mediterranean, or the first island met when sailing north. Its military importance meant that, prior to any design or construction works, the complete site had to be cleared of land mines to ensure safety to the design and construction teams.
