1 The totally synthetic golf course

Taking a divot may have something of a rarity value in years to come. As the Kikuoka Country Club near Luxembourg Airport prepares to open a new course featuring artificial greens with the same contours as a natural putting surface, Steve Marnoch, the architect, says that it is now possible to build a totally synthetic golf course, right down to the bunkers.

"There is gathering interest in such a project," Marnoch, a senior member of the European Institute of Golf Course Architects admitted. "There would be a huge initial outlay but, against that, there would be relatively little in the way of upkeep. The variety of today's synthetic grasses is such that we could produce everything, right down to the different grades of rough they use for championships."
