Henrik Stenson launches golf design business

And secures first contract

Henrik Stenson has formed his own golf course design firm, and signed his first contract to do a major redesign of Österåker Golf Club outside Stockholm, Sweden.

Since then, detailed planning and tendering has taken place to start construction as soon as possible. Henrik Stenson Golf Design and their consultants have worked very closely with the golf club to create a construction plan.

After a competitive tendering process, the Irish golf course construction specialist SOL Golf has been selected to do the work.

“We are very happy to have SOL Golf as the appointed main contractor for the work here. They have a fantastic reputation thanks to their work on the world famous Turnberry course and also the nearby Ullna GC together with Nicklaus a few years ago,” says General Manager Andreas Ljunggren.

When finished, the facility at Österåker will have two 18-hole courses, a nine-hole par 3 course and a practice range.

“It’s been fantastic for me to get a chance to work on a project like this. I know we will create two unique and challenging golf courses,” said Stenson.

He continued, “I know the whole team, from my own guys to agronomists and irrigation designers are putting their pride into delivering on the highest level just as I do in all level of my commitments.”

The total redesign of the facility is divided into two phases to ensure members will have access to at least 18-holes during the whole process.

Construction of the first phase is planned to be finished in 2018 with the new course opening in the summer of 2019. The second phase will follow after the opening of the first phase.
