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.

Just When We Thought We Were Done......

it finally decided to rain! Tuesday, after the team had finished seeding #18 (the last hole by the way), mother nature decided to bless us with 1" of rain in less than 30 minutes. The large amount of rain in such a short time washed away about 25% of the seed on #18 and about 10% of the seed on #9 & #10. Although disappointing, the weather has been extremely favorable up to this point. With a little rework once the ground dries, we should be able to reseed the affected areas and complete the course by early next week.

In other news, the construction of the Kid's Course is fully underway. With all of the green cavities prepped, irrigation being installed, and work on the drainage nearing an end, the greens mix should be added early in the week. This should allow Renaissance to finish shaping the greens and fairways by the end of next week with grassing to be completed the following week!

Finally, I urge everyone to check out this weeks photos. The more established holes look amazing! Click here for this weeks photos: August 8th Photos

Have a great weekend watching the final Major Championship of the year!
