Construction to begin soon...like real soon!
« on: June 01, 2016, 01:15:13 pm »
Many of you are aware that there has been a plan in place to add trails in WW park, and that process has been undergoing review for over a decade.  Well that time is fast approaching and they will begin surveying the park this week and quite possibly breaking ground next week.

This major change at the park will bring a shelter by current hole #12, and trails that flow through holes #12, #13, and #2-#9.

We have worked hard to configure the trails in a mannerism that will minimize the impact to the course but we will now be sharing the park more than in the past.  most of the initial work will be in the North part (by #12) to start and then will continue as the summer goes.  The goal is to have most of this completed by Mid-September/October timelines.

We will be working on a plan as well to have Ben Crosby work with new features to work towards beautification of WW, and as such there may be some changes that take place in regards to the basket movements as well, as we may need to work towards a model with minimal basket movement this summer than we are accustomed to.

Please realize that these changes will enable us to have a better overall presentation for the park and many plans have been delayed as we have worked the P&R to ensure that our place is still #1 within the park.  They value our input, they love what we have done over the past 2 decades in the park, and realize we are the #1 stakeholder in the park.

Change is hard and I know that it may not appear as though to some, but this is a great chance for us to work towards a better park for everyone to enjoy!

Is the change that would necessitate the removal of hole 7, that was mentioned sometime last year, still in the plans as well? Do you foresee any impact on the WW league this summer other than a more static layout?

we really won't know more about leagues until they get started in all honesty, but I am willing to bet that collectively we can come up with an alternate plan in the event that we need to do massive changes while the construction happens.

Initially though the biggest impact will be isolated to the hole #12 area, we may need to move the tee to the west, for those of you that remember the last construction project out here, almost an exact opposite UPHILL shot towards 12's pin would be my thought in the interim, but again once we get started we can look at it.

the #7 lookout is on the "backburner" so it won't happen initially until we see how the changes take effect here and how $$$ comes along to make that change.  The biggest impact at this point will be new trails that will be aligned with the edge of the fairways as such will make new "OB" more than likely making shot selection harder, yet easier as well as OB will OB instead of throwing up from the truck hood on #3 for example....(though #3 long will be the only impacted trail pin).
