Course Renovation in Progress

Quick Progress

Mar 21, 13 • NewsComments OffRead More »

Four days after work commenced on the Poppy Hills renovation, progress is already readily observable.

The par 4 first hole has seen the bumps and small grades that surrounded its green softened into a more natural-looking target. TheĀ beforeĀ (top photo) and after (bottom) demonstrate the intent to introduce a more natural flow to the course.

Gone is the severe hill that guarded the left side of the green, and in its place, a softer downhill slope that lets the green unfold gracefully.

The par-4 third has also seen dramatic progress.

From the tee, the severe hill on the left side of the fairway has become more of a gentle slope, providing a much wider target area, as well as a much more even stance on approach shots.

After a week of preparation, work in earnest only began on Monday. More photos will be posted throughout the week.
