We have officially started the development work on the new residential development (Phase 1) which will include homes north of the current Clubhouse location. In addition, we will construct two new golf holes and a beautiful short game area featuring a practice chipping and bunker area along with a fantastic (large) new practice putting green. It is our hope that if all goes well that we will be using the new short game area and practice putting green as early as late spring, 2019.
Over the next several months we will be doing a significant amount of earthwork in preparation of the homesites and golf holes. You will see dramatic changes to the area north of 161st Street. The practice range is no longer in use and we have set up a hitting net for you to hit balls prior to commencing play on the golf course.
You can refer to this as your informational page that will assist you in understanding all that is happening, as well as photos to keep you abreast of the progress on the project.
A temporary parking lot will be prepared just north and west of the current west parking lot. The temp parking lot should be ready for use within the next week. For a short period of time we will be utilizing the current main entrance as both an entrance and exit to Wood Wind. This will be short term until we have the temp parking lot complete. We will then have an exit to Towne Road to ease the confusion at the main entrance.
The two new golf holes have been designed by local golf course Architect Ron Kern. Ron has also designed the new short game area and practice putting green. You will love it!
Lastly, we will have in the Clubhouse a conceptual layout of the project to assist you. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask Head Golf Professional, Jake Peacock or email Doc O’Neal, who will be the project manager for Cohoat and O’Neal.
