The primary focus of the renovation project so far has been on the front nine and the other side of Lopez Road.

But we thought we’d give you a sneak peek at the one brand new hole at Poppy Hills – No. 11.

The above picture is taken from where the new tee box will be located, which is behind the old 11th green. The red post that looks like it is down the fairway of the old 12th hole is where the green will be.  (Click on the picture to enlarge.) Obviously much work and shaping is yet to be done, but this shot gives you a better idea of where the hole will be located. It will be the shortest of the five par 3s on the course at just 152 from the back tees, 133 from the blacks, 115 from the blues, 105 from the whites and only 93 yards from the reds.

Here is where the 11th green will be located from the angle of looking down the old 12th hole:
