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.

The tee sheet is full this weekend, but....

I'm kidding of course. Although, holes #5, #12, and #13 are looking pretty playable these days! Tracy and his crew are consistently mowing the greens on those three holes, and he was even able to mow the fairway on #12 this week.

With the good weather this week (although a day without wind would be nice), the team was able to get a lot accomplished. Hole #7 seeding was completed early in the week and the majority of hole #3 was able to be seeded toward the end of this week. So to date, nine holes are complete. Additionally, greens mix was added to #8 and #16 this week, and the drainage was completed on the green complexes for holes #2 & #17.

Looking forward, Renaissance Golf Design is moving into the home stretch of their work. Irrigation on holes #1 & #10 should be complete by the end of next week. The short course should be stripped of vegitation next week, with shaping to begin in the next 3-4 weeks. And seeding of #8 and some of the practice facility is next on the schedule.

I did my best to take some "aerial" pictures of the site without an airplane this week, which can be found by clicking here: June 20th Photos

Have a great weekend, and keep it in the short grass!
