Wentworth Golf Club

Wentworth Club has been known as the home of golfing champions since the precursor to the Ryder Cup was played here in 1926. Many more famous Championships have been held at the Club since, with the greatest professionals of the modern golfing era winning on Wentworth’s hallowed courses.

The area was excavated to level the car park location, new kerb edging was installed prior to laying the asphalt material.

An 100mm treatment was then laid to construct the new car park surface, 60mm of 20mm open graded binder course was finished with 40mm of 10mm open graded surface course.

The car park was completed with thermoplastic line marking to line the parking bays and handed back to a very happy client.
