Is your golf course outdated? Are you noticing less traffic coming through to enjoy your greens? Or are you just ready for something new? Whatever the case surrounding your desire to renovate your golf course is, Jeffrey D. Brauer is here to help get you the course of your dreams. Below are some tips for planning a successful golf course renovation:
Evaluate Properly: Whenever you decide to embark on something as huge as a golf course renovation, you want to make sure you are getting the most out of your time and money. Ensure you are evaluating every aspect of your course by meeting with the entire staff, from club officers, employees, perhaps even frequent guests. Ask them what areas and functions of the course they wish would run more smoothly. This can serve as valuable information to those who are planning to renovate a course.
Think Long Term: With any large investment it will be more valuable to you if you plan beyond the immediate future. Think of how many people you will need to accommodate, what equipment is aged, and what steps you can take to preserve your existing equipment, landscapes, and other spaces. The goal is to get as much updating done at once to avoid having to renovate again for a good period of time.
Keep Disturbances To A Minimum: It is important to keep the land as minimally disturbed as possible during your renovation process. It is vital to be sensitive to your grounds and those who are in your community. Work with as many natural landscapes as possible, enhancing their beauty as often as possible, instead of focusing on redefining it.
Timing Matters: You want to work around the weather to ensure ground conditions are favorable for your renovation. You want to give your grassy mounds enough time to grow so that they are gorgeous for spring.
Stay Realistic: When renovating your golf course it is important to manage your expectations with your budget. While it is possible to have a complete redo that does not resemble your current course at all, this requires time and financial resources.
