Brendan Grimes – Ground Under Repair

Brendan Grimes - surface and surface‘Ground Under Repair’ is a photography study by architectural historian and photographer Brendan Grimes of abandoned golf courses in Ireland. A friend told me about this project during the weekend and was really interested in the subject. Golf club membership had become a status symbol during the boom in Ireland. With more and more courses being built to serve the demand and in a way mirroring the housing boom led to over supply. Post boom left many abandoned and financially troublesome course throughout the country, which unlike the ghost housing estates will eventually become consumed again by nature leaving little clues of their previous incarnation.
