Fox Bend Golf Course will undergo a greens renovation project in late summer/early fall 2022. Renovation work will be completed on Holes 2, 7, and 12.
The renovation of the three greens will begin on August 3 and is expected to be completed in October 2022. The newly renovated greens will be reopened for play in the summer of 2023.
The Golf Course will remain open and playable during the Greens Renovation Project. Temporary Greens will be set up on Holes 2, 7, and 12.
Greg Martin, of Greg Martin Design, was the golf course architect chosen to complete the renovation design, and Hollembeak Construction will be the contractor responsible for completing the renovation work.
These greens are being renovated primarily due to the soil composition, which does not allow for adequate drainage and contributes to poor turf quality.
The goal is to improve soil performance, turf quality, and playability. The shape of Holes 2 and 7 will change slightly. Hole 12 will have the biggest changes to allow for more pin locations.
The bunkers at these complexes will also be rebuilt to eliminate rocks and improve drainage and sand retention. These holes will include some collection areas that will be unique to the golf course.
