A particular expertise has been gained in golf-based leisure where several clubhouses have been designed resulting in the authorship of “Golf Clubhouses – A Planning Guide” for the Golf Development Council and “The Design of Clubhouses” for the Sports Council by our founding partner Roger Dyer. As the provision of retail and leisure facilities associated with golf becomes more widespread, Dyer has made use of its considerable experience in the design of hotels, restaurants and retail centres.
The practice has worked in association with major international golf course architects including the late Dave Thomas, Paul Thomas, Neil Coles, Brian Huggett, John Jacobs, Tony Jacklin and Jack Nicklaus.
We have also worked extensively with specialist international golf contractors and consultants such as Southern Golf, Alfred McAlpine etc both nationally and internationally.

- Silvermere Golf Club
The tree-lined golf course at Silvermere is a true test of golf located in the heart of Surrey. The first six holes are sure to get the pulse racing with tight fairways, challenging approaches and great views. However, the course is probably most renowned for the 17th and 18th holes which are played over Silvermere Lake. The 18th hole finishes into a semi-island green that has been recently re-built, offering a spectacular finishing hole. For players there is the thrill of hitting over the lake onto the island target. For the visitors enjoying the Inn on the Lake there is always the hope of watching another ball confined to a watery grave.
