Renovation Update - Construction Begins

The Hill - Golf Course Renovation Project Starts Today
 
Construction on the Hill Golf Course renovation project begins today. This will involve earth moving and erosion and sediment control measures. Shaping
 
On Monday, August 21, tree removal to create new greens and tee boxes will begin. Additional work throughout the fall, winter, and early spring will include:  
 
•Grading and shaping the practice green near the club house
•Reshaping and creating new sand bunkers to enhance the difficulty and playability of the course.
•Adjusting the irrigation system based on course geometry changes.
•Aerating the fairways to prepare for new turf seed.
•Placing sod around the greens, tee boxes, and sand bunkers to instantly establish a turf condition.  This is both for aesthetics to produce an attractive turf system as well as erosion control benefits.
•Installing new tee markers, benches, trash containers and landscaping enhancements to put the finishing touches on the course.
 
For safety measures during construction, and to allow a “grow in” period for the new turf, the course is closed to the public. A late spring/early summer opening is planned to welcome the community back to the course.
