TV programme documents golf course construction

Golf course constructor MJ Abbott is to feature in a television documentary for Five.

How Do They Make a Golf Course? was commissioned by WAG-TV as part of its How Do They Do It? series.

Filming took place at Rockliffe Hall near Darlington, County Durham, where the firm is constructing one of the longest and most challenging courses in the UK at 7,214m to the back tees.

MJ Abbott contracts director Nigel Wyatt said: "I hope the programme gives viewers, especially golfers, an insight into the complex design, construction and maintenance involved in the creation of each golf course."

The show is due to be broadcast at 7.30pm on 9 October on Five and later in the year on the Discovery Channel.
