Sandy Run Country Club

Green Complex Reconstruction
Oreland, Pennsylvania
Services Provided: Design/Build

When Sandy Run Country Club was looking into the possibility of reconstructing three greens at the historic Philadelphia suburban club, they asked Shearon to put a price on a concept plan they had developed. After studying the plans provided, Shearon’s architects, working with the club, developed plans that better fit the character of the course, set more naturally in the environment and reduced cost. Through careful planning by the club and the cost savings provided by Shearon, the club was able to include work that was beyond the original scope of the project, while not going over budget.

After developing construction documents, Shearon team of architects, shapers and construction mangers worked closely with the club and the superintendent throughout construction, making field adjustments to efficiently make improvements to the holes where work was being completed. Shearon, working through difficult late fall and early winter conditions, was able to pull on large work force to complete the sodding of the eighteenth green in time for the project unveiling in Spring. In the end, the club had three state-of-the-art USGA green complexes that fit in with the rest of the course and were able to make much needed improvements elsewhere without asking the members for additional financial support.
