The course at the Palm City, Fla. property will reopen for play on November 15, following the six-and-half-month project that included reconstructing the green complexes, regrassing the entire layout, installing a new irrigation system and replacing acres of maintained and irrigated turf with pine straw and coquina shell.
Renovation of the Golden Marsh course at Harbour Ridge Yacht and Country Club in Palm City, Fla., has been completed, and the course will reopen for play on November 15th.
The project included reconstructing the green complexes; updating the appearance and placement of the bunkers; regrassing the entire layout; installing a new irrigation system; underbrushing the roughs and out-of-play areas; and replacing acres of maintained, irrigated turf with pine straw and coquina shell.
“Members will enjoy and recognize the John Dodge-developed project and original 1984 Joe Lee layout for Golden Marsh,” said Bobby Weed, of Bobby Weed Golf Design, the architect for the renovation project. “The updated course has more enhanced native features and coquina rock walls, along with greater variety and visual appeal.”
Construction for the project began on April 2nd, with Classic Golf and Nutt Irrigation as additional contractors.
The revitalized Golden Marsh course will join the River Ridge course, Harbour Ridge’s other 18-hole layout. River Ridge was originally designed by Pete and P.B. Dye, allowing Harbour Ridge to join TPC Sawgrass (Stadium/Valley) and Omni Amelia Island Plantation as multi-course properties that feature the work of both Weed and his mentor.
