Hammock Dunes Celebrates Opening of Links Course Practice Facility
Date Posted: Mar 18, 2009
Accompanied by attendance of the major equipment manufacturers, the Hammock Dunes Club in Palm Coast, Florida celebrated the Grand Opening of its new Practice Facilities on November 14th, 2008. The expanded range and new practice greens were designed by Schlegel Golf Course Design and constructed by MacCurrach Golf Construction during the summer months. Golf Course Superintendent Steve Sorrell had the new facility in great shape with the new TifEagle greens rolling to over 10 " on the stimpmeter.
The scope of work included construction of a new putting green, a green surrounded by fairway on all sides for 360 degree practice from up to 35 yards, a new green with three bunkers for sand practice and lob work, and expansion of the existing practice tee to accommodate extra tee locations. The addition of these new amenities has been received with great fanfare as the Club is being challenged to keep a steady supply of balls available for practice!
