About the redesigned 18-hole course, practice facilities, and 9-hole course
“We focused on creating variety at each hole and incorporating angles that are strategic and more visually interesting. For example, the new 18th hole is a medium-length par 4 that will play uphill and slightly turn from right to left, with several bunkers framing the inside and outside edges of the landing areas. The green complex at #18 will also offer a more impressive finale as it sits directly below the clubhouse, where members will have a prime spot to watch golfers finish their rounds.
Additional improvements to the course include a ribbon tee system with six sets of tees ranging from 3,800-7,200 yards, greens set at various elevations and angles ranging from 4,500-10,000 square feet in size, and classic bunkering with steep grass faces and flat sand bottom floors.
State-of-the-art practice facilities are a significant part of the upgrade, with 20,000 square feet of putting green and putting course and a two-acre short game complex comprised of 3 greens and several bunkers to allow players to work on all aspects of their short game. The 10-acre driving range will feature Trackman technology to help enhance the practice experience; the large grass tee at the range will sit adjacent to the new golf [teaching facility].”
