Club, a private member-owned club in Linville. The work is part of a 10-year master plan by the Florida-based design company. “This storied course continues to offer


B


improved aesthetics and playability,” said golf course architect Bobby Weed. “Golfers can make shot decisions based on enhanced visibility on the first hole, while appreciating many of the layout’s unique features which have re-emerged with the ongoing improvements.” Bobby Weed Golf Design helped the


club restructure a short-term and long- range plan to preserve and enhance the classic Ellis Maples layout. Following some substantial improvements sev- eral years ago, Weed and his team have worked in a creative and incremental fashion, each autumn and early spring, so as not to disrupt play. Extensive tree removal, installation


of subsurface fairway drainage and con- struction of open rock-lined streams are some components of the renovation. Over 40 years tree growth in the


corridors necessitated removal efforts to bring many of the holes back to their original lines. The green and tee complex- es, and then the fairways, were the ben- eficiaries of the widespread tree removal, which nonetheless is nearly undetectable to players accustomed to the lush beauty of the course.
