Nestled amidst the serene landscapes of Cleckheaton Golf Club stands as a testament to both sporting excellence and architectural ingenuity. Founded in 1921, this prestigious golf club has not only been a haven for avid golfers but also a historical landmark, boasting a course designed by none other than Dr. Alister MacKenzie in 1921. Dr. MacKenzie, renowned worldwide for his mastery in golf course architecture, lent his visionary touch to create a course that has hosted generations of golf enthusiasts and professionals alike.

Recently, Cleckheaton Golf Club embarked on a journey to ensure the safety and well-being of its members, visitors, and staff by commissioning an updated asbestos management survey. This crucial step in maintaining a safe environment was entrusted to Complete Asbestos Surveys, a leading authority in asbestos surveying and management. The scope of the survey encompassed every corner of the club’s facilities, from the iconic clubhouse to the essential service areas like changing rooms, kitchen facilities, lounge areas, offices, and even the pro shop. Additionally, the survey extended to the outbuildings utilized by the dedicated greenkeeping team, ensuring comprehensive coverage across the entire premises.

The Legacy of Design Excellence

Dr. Alister MacKenzie’s influence on Cleckheaton Golf Club cannot be overstated. His unique approach to golf course design, blending natural contours with strategic challenges, has defined some of the world’s most revered courses. The Cleckheaton Golf Club’s course, designed nearly a century ago, continues to embody his principles of integrating the natural landscape into the golfing experience. As our team embarked on the survey, we couldn’t help but admire the seamless integration of fairways, bunkers, and greens amidst the backdrop of course’s breath taking scenery.

Navigating the Survey Process

Conducting an asbestos management survey requires meticulous planning and execution, especially in a setting as historically significant as Cleckheaton Golf Club. Our team at Complete Asbestos Surveys approached the task with utmost professionalism and attention to detail. Each area designated for assessment was carefully inspected for any signs of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) or debris that could pose a potential risk to health and safety.

The survey revealed a minor area within the premises where asbestos insulation debris was identified. This discovery, while concerning, underscored the importance of proactive management and adherence to safety protocols. In collaboration with the management of Cleckheaton Golf Club, immediate measures were implemented to restrict access to the affected area until comprehensive remedial works could be initiated. Ensuring the safety of club members, visitors, and staff remains our top priority, and our prompt actions reflected our commitment to mitigating any potential risks associated with asbestos exposure.
