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.

I knew I moved back to paradise!

After spending an amazing morning taking this weeks photos, I realized just how lucky I am to be part of such an amazing project! Everyone knows how beautiful Colorado is, but who knew
(I didn't) that in the middle of a city as large as Denver, you could feel so serene. Tom Doak and his crew have done a spectacular job of designing a golf course that compliments the native landscape of Colorado right in the heart of the city. Not only are the views phenomenal, but I think that the future golfers are going to be amazed at how close to nature they are going to feel during a round at CommonGround.

Well despite some challanges with the wind this week, the team was able to get holes #14, #15, the rest of #6, and half of #7 seeded. The irrigation is complete on all but three holes. Tracy was able to put a mow on the 5th green, and Renaissance has continued to move forward with the preparation of the greens and features for the holes that will be seeded next. Next week the team plans to finish up seeding #7 and move on to #3. Hole #1 has had the weeds removed, so at least now I can see "golf" and not just "construction" from my office window.

Finally, the feedback from the CJGA staff was nothing short of unbridled delight after having the opportunity to tour the routing of the short course. They are absolutely exstatic about having a home course for their programs, and can't wait until they host the first 10 & under event here.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. I hope yours will be as enjoyable as mine..... a day of watching the US Open with my kids!
