Golf courses are a living, breathing organism - they are not static. The ground swells, the trees grow and with modern advancements in technology, green speeds accelerate. Change is inevitable.
In Fall of 2015, the Priddis Greens Golf & Country Club embarked on a major capital project by renovating all 18 greens on the Hawk Course. Many of the changes were relatively subtle in nature, while others less so. 15 of the greens were subtly re-contoured and re-surfaced to Penn T-1, one of the newest bent grass cultivars, for the most reliable and consistent putting surfaces possible.
The 2nd, 3rd and 15th greens were completely rebuilt to enhance playability, increase strategic interest, and improve aesthetics. The 2nd green was enlarged and shifted west to bring the neighbouring creek more into play. The 3rd green was enlarged and re-contoured to create exciting new hole locations behind the renovated pond, and bring a new ‘Sunday’ pin into play behind the newly positioned bunker. The 15th green was re-configured placing an emphasis on proper shot placement to score well.
