Sherrill Park Course No. 1 closed Monday, February 9, 2015 for renovations that will include new green surfaces, and reworked fairways. Every bunker on the course will be reworked and two new bunkers will be added. The bunkers will have a new look with grassed down faces with sand in the floor of the bunkers.
The last renovation took place in 1997 and while it remained a quality course, several areas needed improvement and maintenance. New grass on all 18 green surfaces is the most significant part of the renovations. The green complexes at holes 2, 4, 5, 14, 17 and 18 will be improved to create additional interest and playability and the 18th green will be shifted back and to the right to add additional length to the course’s final hole.
Work is expected to take about eight months, with the newly renovated course scheduled to be open in late September or early October.
