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.

Happy 4th of July!

When Dwight McCormack of ACC (I generally refer to him as Chief Dirt) told me yesterday that the dirt on site at CommonGround might very well be the best dirt he has ever worked with, I was astonished. I've spent plenty of hours trying to dig holes through bentonite clay in my own yard to form the opinion that great dirt and Colorado don't go hand in hand. Well to me, this meant:


GREAT DIRT = GREAT TURFGRASS.
.
I admit I am no expert, but based on how well the grass has already begun to establish itself with the help of Tracy and crew, I'm extremely excited about how good the playing conditions will eventually be!

Thanks to the great weather, the team has been cruising! This week they were able to finish seeding hole #16 and the entire Driving Range. We now have 11 entire holes complete as well as the Driving Range! By the end of this week, Tracy and crew will be mowing 6 of the greens (#'s 4,5,12,13,14,&15) and 4 of the fairways (#'s 4,5,12,&13). Looking ahead, holes #2 and #17 have been prepped and will be seeded next week, while #1 and #11 will be prepped for seeding in the near future. Finally, shaping has begun on the Kid's Course.

Have a great holiday weekend! For this weeks photos, click here: July 3rd Photos.
