Renovation work that will be done over the winter includes upgrades to the kitchen and concessions, restroom facilities, HVAC and mechanical systems, roof and siding, and landscaping, In addition, the pro shop is being relocated, the outside patio is expanding and a new driving range is being built.
By the time golfers in Troy, Ohio hit the local greens next season, they’ll find a changed golf course waiting for them.
Upgrades to the Miami Shores Golf Course, built in 1948, promise to provide some new experiences for frequent users of the 130-acre city-owned facility, the Dayton Business Journal reported. The 18-hole golf course has maintained some of these facilities since it first opened its doors, the city said.
In all, the city’s plan calls for $1.2 million in renovation work. The 6,750-sq. ft. clubhouse is seeing upgrades to the kitchen and concessions, restroom facilities, HVAC and mechanical systems, roof and siding, and landscaping, as well as relocating the pro shop, expanding outside patio, and building a new driving range.
An assessment from BC&E Engineering of Dayton indicated that some parts of the facility are near the end of their artificial life, the Business Journal reported.
Vancon General Contractor is the builder for the site, the Business Journal reported.
The course’s driving range is getting a $200,000 rebuild, the Business Journal reported. The self-service range will see new targets. The 300-yard range, which sits near the front of the course, benefits from construction of the Kettering Health Network facility in the city, where dirt has been moved for grading work, the Business Journal reported.
“Things are moving along really well with the range; I feel like everything is on time and on target for both projects,” said Kyler Booher, Miami Shores’ golf pro.
Construction began in September and continues as the course is closed for the winter, the Business Journal reported. The golf course is scheduled to reopen March 1, 2019.
