After talking with several of the top park personnel, i strongly encouraged and we decided that it would be best to seed the disturbed areas and let the seed take hold over the winter and open next Spring. This also allows them to continue working on spraying ivy, pushing back more areas, fine tuning, and getting the course looking really good for the Spring. the course is coming along nicely and we made a big push with large excavator a couple weeks ago. Much work was done on the lower pond.
There will be 8 permanent long gold baskets, however 1 gold basket will be shared between 2 holes giving 9 long gold holes that will never be moved from long placements. So there will be technically two courses to play, a 9 hole gold course and a 18 hole blue level course. My intention was to provide an experience that offers several choices for players. With 9 long options, players will not get bored if baskets do not get moved or course is set short for winter. 7 of the gold baskets locations are 2 shot holes giving players something else besides par 3 golf. Also very happy to share that the course will have 14 Red level tee pads for beginners as well. With the elevation, water, woods, and wind, Stocksdale will have plenty to offer.
