Here is the latest from the designer.
These are close estimates.
Lots of OB. Fast greens. Butt cheek clinching to the max.
The shots are right there in front of you. No real luck factors. If you execute the shot you will be rewarded with a chance for birdie or a chance to execute your next shot for a rewarding 3. I feel like the course is going to play harder than the old layout. No easy birdies. Definitely some room to air out some shots. We are losing some nice areas and gaining some others. We won't have people parking on the fairways anymore. We have two bathrooms and water fountains on the front nine. More room to park. And should see a well manicured and maintained park.
We are probably looking at a realistic date of Nov. for getting in there to play our first rounds. I am still tweaking a few of the holes and trying to get a feel for how they will play.
We are hoping it will be in full swing by Oct. We have to redesign the front 9 due to changes in the park layout during construction. We are still working on the new front 9 and have not decided on a layout yet.
