Invited announced a significant capital improvement investment at Aspen Glen Club in Carbondale, Colo. The first of three planned phases of these renovations is underway and will focus on improving practice facilities, restoring course bunkers and replacing key elements of the golf course’s irrigation capabilities.
Future phases will include comprehensive investments in renovating the club’s fitness center and pool facilities, as well as the installment of new pickleball courts.
Invited and Aspen Glen Club have contracted with Diamond Golf to lead construction and renovation efforts. Diamond Golf has a long record of working on several of the best-known courses in Colorado.
“We’re thrilled to kick off these extensive investments in our club, focusing on improving the quality play at our golf course and taking the broader membership experience to a new level,” said Mike Fleig, General Manager of Aspen Glen Club. “Over the coming months, these three phases will represent a comprehensive investment in and fundamental enhancement of our entire club. We can’t wait to enter this new, exciting chapter at Aspen Glen.”
The Jack Nicklaus Legacy-designed golf course is one of the most revered in Colorado, and the first project for the renovations is the rebuilding of its bunkers. Doing so will restore them to the original shape and design. Work already has begun with teams conducting the repairs in three-to-four-hole increments, allowing for play to continue unfettered.
In October, construction on a new driving range featuring a state-of-the-art practice area will get underway. The existing two-tier design will be removed and replaced with an enhanced hitting area and new targets. Additionally, the short game area will close in mid-October so construction teams can focus on overhauling and expanding the space. Both projects should be finished by Spring 2023.
Starting in November, the two irrigation lakes will be drained so new lake liners can be installed. At the same time, the more up-to-date irrigation technologies will be installed to reduce water consumption and ensure a more consistent playing surface. Both projects are projected to be complete by the end of the year.
