KLM open in 2020 at golf course Bernardus
Bernardus golf course in the town of Cromvoirt was completed in the south of the Netherlands. It is an 18-hole golf course including driving range, extensive practice area and the layout of 28.5 hectares of new nature. A prestigious project since on the one hand, a completely new golf course of this size is only rarely realized in the Netherlands and on the other hand the goal is to create a top course directly. Recently it has become known that the KLM Open will be played on this golf course from 2020 onwards for the contract period of three years.
The golf course was designed by the American architect Kyle Phillips with many famous jobs around the world to his name. In the Netherlands it will only become the second 18-hole golf course by this renowned architect.
The clubhouse and the exit building
The clubhouse and the exit building are designed as a raised piece of land under which a covered area arises, where the golfers can practice their exit.
The clubhouse consists of a part that is equipped as a restaurant with offices and a part specifically for members: the real clubhouse. These building parts are housed under roofs like large zinc leaves. Terraces and platforms give spectators the space to look out over the 18-hole golf course.
Pieters Bouwtechniek acted as chief structural engineer in this project. We take care of the structural design, the main calculations, checks on the other disciplines and supervision during the construction. What is special about this project are the eye-catching roofs. The roofs have an organic shape and each section is unique. The roof consists of steel truss beams which are screwed onto the concrete shell. Pieters Bouwtechniek has calculated this steel structure and modeled it in a revit model. This model served as the basis for the steel supplier to be able to make their workshop drawings.
