CommonGround Golf Course

CommonGround Golf Course is a new Tom Doak designed facility scheduled to open in the spring of 2009.

The facility will be the home of the CGA & the CWGA, and will be an affordable public facility built to support the mission of both organizations to "...represent, promote, and serve the best interests of golf in the state of Colorado".

The facility will include a world class 18 hole Championship Golf Course, a short course devoted to Junior Golf development, and a full service practice facility.

And then there was grass......

Everything is on schedule!! To date, all of my colleagues who are doing the real work (Tracy, Bobby & Crew, Renaissance Golf Design, Modern Golf, and ACC), have already managed to get 4+ holes seeded. Holes #4, #5, #12, #13, & #6 (tee boxes) are completed and have moved from construction stage to grow in stage. Tracy was even able to put the first mow on #12 green this week! If the weather stays this good, the team is hoping to have everything seeded by August 1st.

Additionally this week, Eric Iverson of Renaissance, layed out the preliminary routing for what promises to be an outstanding par 3 course. I know I'm not the only one looking forward to seeing an entirely new generation of golfers learn to love the game on the short course.
Have fun on the links this weekend! If you would like to see more pictures of the course, please follow this link: June 4th Photos
