Course Notes, 9/7/2020

Happy Labor Day to everyone! A quick note informing everyone that the start dates have changed for the Golf Course Improvement Project. After discussing with our contractor, Golf Creations, and the Golf/Greens Committee, the project will begin on September 17th.

This change in start date will alleviate concerns of the project impacting major events that still take place in September, including the Hole in One Stag event. This will also allow our contractor flexibility in their scheduling regarding the mobilization of their personnel. Once Golf Creations begins on the 17th, they will work 7 days a week, weather permitting, until the project is completed. Even with the later start, their staff is planning on an 8-9 week completion date for the entire project and is committed to complete our project in its entirety in 2020, given their busy Spring 2021 agenda.

After discussions with the Golf/Greens Committee and the Design Committee, there will also be a change in construction order. After the Practice Facility upgrades are completed, the construction crew will work on holes 9 and 18, then work backwards from there. That will simplify the communication on what holes will be available to you on a given day you decide to visit Elcona. There will be signage at the Pro Shop as well to communicate the daily availability and happenings on the golf course.

If you have any questions, please let me know at ryan@elconacc.com. We are all excited to get this project started and I can’t wait to see the final product. Thanks for your continued support and have a safe, happy Labor Day!
