Golf is looking up. There are not many new courses opening in the USA, but what is happening that golf clubs throughout the country are making substantial improvements to their existing courses. Just to name a few around Florida – The PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Plantation Palms in Land O’ Lakes, Harmony, Oaks National and Champions Gate in Osceola County, Huntington Hills in Lakeland, Pinecrest in Avon Park, Tiburon in Naples and Pelicans Nest in Bonita Springs.
At my home club at Stonegate Golf Club in Poinciana, both of our 18 hole championship courses are going through major renovations of bunkers, improvements to the daily care of the tees, greens and fairways and clearing of under brush in the rough. It makes a Duffer like me feel good when I play a well manicured and maintained golf course. I hope you feel the same way. Remember to thank the course Pro or Superintendent for a job well done. They take pride in their work, but could use a pat on the back to know we appreciate them.
