The Nampa, Idaho property will be known as RedHawk Golf Course when it reopens in the spring after being closed since April 2012. Work is underway to improve the golf course, including the addition of 25 acres of irrigated turf and 1,000 trees, and building a new two-story clubhouse.
The owners of Hunter’s Point Golf Course in Nampa, Idaho, have chosen a new name for the facility, RedHawk Golf Course, ahead of its reopening, the Nampa-based Idaho Press-Tribune reported.
The 150-acre golf course is expected to open this spring, marketing director Vina Rathbone said.
Hunter’s Point, which has been closed since April 2012 because of financial problems, was acquired last year by Canyon County Golf Partners. Clint Travis and Jerry Breaux, two of the partners, are also responsible for the construction and management of several other area golf courses, including TimberStone Golf Course in Caldwell, Idaho. Like Hunter’s Point, TimberStone had also gone into financial distress before the partners were able to turn it around, Travis told the Press-Tribune in October.
“I think we were able to pull off something special out there that customers like,” Travis said. “We want to take that same philosophy and bring it over here.”
Work is underway to improve the course and convert it from a challenging private course to a public course that is more fun to play, Travis said. They are also adding more than 1,000 trees, filling in bunkers, putting in 25 additional acres of irrigated turf and building a new two-story clubhouse, the Press-Tribune reported.
