Golf Project Construction to Begin This Week

It is time!  

We have received word that Sanders will begin construction on the golf portion of the Enduring Legacy Project this week. While we were prepared for the short notice, we do have an unexpected change to our construction schedule. Sanders has a shaper that specializes in tee shaping available to start immediately, but we are still a couple of weeks away from a bunker shaper becoming available. This means that we will begin construction on the practice facility first, with bunkers soon to follow. While we understand that this is short notice for you as well, we trust that you are also excited for construction to finally begin. Just as most worthwhile things in life take time, our practice facility construction will be a process. While Sanders will have completed all golf course construction by February of 2023, our new 40,000 square feet of Tahoma 31 Bluegrass tee cannot be sodded until May/June. We expect it will be in use by August of next year. Our new 25 stations of installed artificial turf will be ready for your use as construction is completed in early 2023.  

The Practice Facility will be closed as of tomorrow October 13th. In the meantime, we will have a warm up station available for you to use prior to your tee time to hit a few balls. This is not intended for practice and can only be used for warming up prior to your tee times.   Thank you for your patience as we work to be the best we can be for the long term. Minor inconvenience equals years of success!  

Practice Facility Renovations to Include  
- 25 hitting stations of installed artificial turf 
- 40,000 sq ft of laser graded Tahoma 31 Bluegrass tee 
- New irrigation
- 8,500 sq ft chipping green
- Existing chipping green converted to putting green true to putting conditions on the course
- Areas designated for warm up, practice, as well as instruction - Room for everyone!

We are still awaiting expectations for hole closures during bunker construction. We know you are anxious to understand the process and as soon as we know what to expect we will communicate that to you. 

Turf area sprayed around new bunker sites has died off as planned. Please keep in mind that this area also includes bunker facing that will be new Innovation Zoysia, which is why the affected area seems so large. If your ball lands in these areas, count your blessings that construction isn't completed and seek relief at the nearest point of play no closer to the hole. 

The LFCC Board of Directors has awarded Sanders Golf with the bid for all Golf related construction of the Enduring Legacy Project.   For a list of Sanders' extensive project history, please click here
