London-based practice Harty + Harty has drawn up a concept for an 18-hole vertical golf course to fit alongside skyscrapers in the financial districts of London or Tokyo. The 250m-high design includes a high-speed lift to take golfers to the first hole at the top of the building, a veil of mesh to catch lost balls and real grass fairways and trees. The design has a 20 x 50m footprint and a par-golfer will take 63 strokes to get from clubhouse to pavement. The husband and wife team have compared their ambitious plan to the London Eye ferris wheel on the Thames but say they are resisting pressure to scale down their concept to pitch-and- putt in order to turn their vision into reality.
