In order to provide for increased levels of play and to generate additional sources of income, the Ruggles Golf Course at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD will be renovated by Schlegel Golf Course Design. Plans call for the phased implementation of a complete Master Plan to upgrade all aspects of the facility.
Already playing to a healthy distance of well over 7100 yards, the vintage Edmund B. Ault/William Gordon layout will gain greater flexibility to accommodate a wider range of golfers, especially from additional forward sets of tees. A new full-scale practice area and short game practice area will more than double the capacity of the current facilities and add amenities desired by today's players. Minor hole relocation, green construction, enhanced strategy, and pond construction will all be carried out to varying degrees over the life of the project.
As other initiatives associated with the federal Base Realignment and Closure program are realized, look for this polished "diamond in the rough " to be opened for public access.
