Development

Hole-11-webWe constantly improve the course and its surrounding areas to make golf more enjoyable and rewarding for Members and Guests. Recent projects have included a pond on the 11th hole, a new veranda in front of the clubhouse, increased bunkers, green drainage, new tees and improved paths.

In recent years, the focus has been to improve conditions during wet winter months, to ensure golfers take advantage of official tees and greens all year round. Increasing drainage on greens and heavy walk areas has helped a great deal, as well as under soil rubber mats for tee areas.
