Furthermore SOL Golf are excited to return to Switzerland this year to Golf Club Crans-Sur-Sierre, Lens. Home of the Omega Masters and also back to Golf Club De Geneve to build a new practice facility.

EIGCA member Dave Sampson comments - ‘EGD are currently working together with SOL Golf at both Golf Club Crans sur Sierre up in the Swiss mountains, and at Marco Simone, Rome. This project is currently in Phase 1, where the first 11 holes are currently being rebuilt. The remaining 7 holes will commence construction in October this year, with the totally new course initially hosting the Italian Open in 2021, one year ahead of the Ryder Cup. To date, construction works have progressed well, and it has been pleasure to work with the professional and talented crews that SOL Golf have in place on both projects. They have also shown a flexibility and an ability to coordinate their works alongside other various earthworks and irrigation contractors.’
