 The eight-month project will concentrate on renovating 35 greens and resurfacing greens with MiniVerde grass ; renovating all tee boxes with Zoysia grass; introducing an improved variety of Bermudagrass called Celebration to a total of 11 fairways from both courses; repairing of drainage and renovating of bunkers; replacing the irrigation system for both courses and installing pond erosion control measures in select ponds.

The renovation will also include the redesign and renovation of the club’s practice area to feature a new short game facility to help golfers practice short game shots that they may encounter on the golf course.
