On the 18th hole, we will be re-shaping the green approach. A very large boulder that is currently covered in the approach will be removed and the area will be re-graded. This will allow for shots that are hit into this approach area to have a better chance of releasing towards and onto the green, rather than being deflected towards the bunker or bent grass green surrounds.
Tom Brodeur (Golf Course Sup) will also be raising a basin that is left of the fairway pot bunker and the grass will be converted from rough to fairway. The goal is to improve the ability for a player to lay up left of the pot bunker by adding approximately 8 to 9 yards of additional fairway grass, also giving a better angle for a player's third shot into the 18th green.
On hole #1, we will be converting the current championship tee into a practice putting green. The new championship tee will be constructed left of the current tee.
*The addition of the practice green near the 1st tee, in my opinion, is to speed up pace of play. For those of you who have not had the opportunity to play or see the course, the 1st tee is a good 1/2mile away from the clubhouse and rest of the practice facilities.
