”Darren är en grävmaskinist av högsta rang. I sitt arbete med grävmaskin är han både effektiv och noggrann med ett slutresultat som blir exakt som man vill ha det. Darren är mycket flexibel och kan köra alla maskiner och göra vilka jobb som helst. Med sina erfarenheter har han även varit mycket hjälpsam och delaktig i de oförutsedda problem som kan uppstå vid markarbeten”

Frösåker Golf & Country Club
Letter of recommendation
Frösåker Golf & Country Club was first opened in 1989. The course was originally designed by the late swedish golfcourse designer, Sune Linde, and was early ranked as one of the best courses in Sweden.
In 2013, we started to design a new 9-hole track, mainly designed for practice. This course was also aimed at those who have less time to play and needed to find time to play golf in less than two hours.
The result was our new 9-hole Links Course.
We chose Pierre Fulke and Adam Mednik for the design. Our objective was to create an ”scottish-type-links feeling” for the challenge and FUN. Pierre then got us in touch with Darren Hughes, an english professional shaper.
With Darrens keen eye and professional attitude, the course quickly evolved into something very unique. We have absolutely no course like it in Sweden, or Europe for that matter. The course evolved into something even more ”linksier” than we hade ever beleived possible.
Darrens ability to shape, but also his knowledge about course maintenence, as well as strategy and course architecture – made him the perfect shaper together with Pierre and Adam as the architects. They three of them together, was truly a match made in heaven.
We would like to strongly recommend Darren Hughes for any work, or position as shaper. You will indeed be very pleased with the results.
