Golf Course Construction & Renovation

Over my 30 years of experience, I have discovered that the renovation process often requires more attention to detail and advance planning than the original construction phase. Though not every “oh-oh” can be identified in advance, my experience gives me an advantage because I’ve experienced many unforeseen pitfalls from mother nature or poor construction – and I’ve been able to successfully deliver a great solution. That is one reason contractors such as Greensmith are so vital to the success of a renovation project. I do this type of challenging work every day of the year. Superintendents and course owners are very skilled and knowledgeable but usually only have this experience once or twice in their professional life and simply do not have such a broad experience to draw from. I look forward to helping you.

GOLF CONSTRUCTION

Links at Lawrence

Links at Lawrence
Lawrence, Kansas
Architect: Lyndy LindseyThis property was in planning for several years, over time the space for the golf course got smaller and smaller until there was barely enough room for a small par three 9 hole golf course, so the decision was made to make it British Open style. Don’t let “length” or “lack-of” fool you! For a short par 3, if you miss the greens you will go home over par and aggravated because this short par 3 kicked your butt, guaranteeing that you will come back and try again!

Architect: Lyndy LindseySupervised and shaped 9-hole course. The site varied from muddy creek bottom to rocks the size of a D4. We used slabs of excavated rocks to build rock walls supporting various tees throughout the site, as well as one of the greens. Utilized existing rock outcroppings where available to give the place a more natural look. Rough shaped with a D8, finished with a JD650 and used forklifts and excavators to help with the rock walls. With sections of cart path as long as 800 feet running through the forest, there was a battle using a Line Pump to pour the concrete.
