A master plan submitted by Tom Doak with Renaissance Golf Design has been accepted by the club. Renaissance has been responsible for many of the world’s greatest golf courses, including four original designs and seven remodels/restorations in the World Top 100. Renaissance also has four original designs and nine more redesign/restorations in the Top 100 of the United States. Mr. Doak is also one of the foremost experts on how Perry Maxwell built greens, making him the perfect choice to ensure that this project is done correctly and appropriately. He believes enough in this project that he will be donating his time and forgiving his design fees, which are usually quite substantial.
Renaissance Golf Design will work closely with golf course builder Total Turf Golf Services to carry out the bulk of the construction. Total Turf’s portfolio is very impressive and references that have been contacted about their work have been nothing but glowing. These two firms have worked together on a number of projects and have a great rapport. They each understand the tight timeline requirements of the project and have the ability to ramp up labor, if needed, at no extra cost to meet those requirements. At any given time during construction, there could be anywhere from 45-65 crew members on site split into multiple teams working on various aspects of the project.
The scope of the work will include a complete restoration and rebuild of the greens, bunkers and most teeing surfaces. There will also be some shaping work done on #1 fairway. The greens will be built to USGA specifications and the bunkers will be built using the Better Billy Bunker method. A complete irrigation system renovation will also be performed.
