Issues and challenges

Golf Up is not a traditional golf course. It is an innovative facility designed to offer customers a unique and complete experience with golf-related digital services. Located in Grimaud, in the South of France, it features a golf school, practice range, 9-hole golf course, pro shop, restaurant and nine luxury holiday apartments.

Initially I contacted Orange to move a pole on our course. One thing led to another, and we ended up building a hi-tech golf course.
