Golf Course Enhancement Update

Following this week’s Golf Course Enhancement Town Hall, members of the project team met with representatives from the City of Georgetown to discuss permitting requirements related to the project. Due to additional regulations put in place last year, the permitting process will now be significantly longer than originally projected. At best, this shift in the schedule may only allow for a small window of construction during the growing season in 2016.

The Golf Course Enhancement Task Force has discussed the new requirements and their impact to the timeline, budget, golfers and community. The group considered several options for moving forward on the project and has decided to delay the construction phase of the project until early 2017 in order to protect the quality of the courses and maximize the budgeted amount for the project. 

The next phases of the project including design development, master plan, permitting, construction documents and bidding will continue as planned in 2016. Both Legacy Hills and White Wing Golf Courses will continue normal operations throughout the year. Construction will commence in early 2017, providing optimal conditions for the grow-in phase and the best outcome possible for the project.

We will begin working on the new permitting requirements now and will incorporate your feedback from Tuesday's Town Hall into the next set of engineered schematics. This step is scheduled for completion in late March, after which a new project timeline will be communicated through your CA and Golf Communicators.
