Bobby Weed Golf Design has been hired to lead a new project at the Greenacres Country Club in Lawrenceville, New Jersey.
The project will see renovation work take place on the course, as well as the repurposing of selected acreage for residential use.
The 18-hole course was originally designed by Devereaux Emmet, before a redesign project took place in 1971 led by George Fazio.
“The golf course at Greenacres is showing typical effects of age, such as turfgrass, irrigation and drainage issues, too many trees and general infrastructure decline,” said Chris Monti, senior design associate at Bobby Weed Golf Design.
The firm will plan and implement the complete makeover of the course’s look, playability and infrastructure. It is hoped that the project will ensure the viability of the club for decades to come, without burdening the membership.
A team from Bobby Weed Golf Design has already completed the new land plan, which includes a revised routing plan for the course. The focus will now shift to the golf course portion and the working with the club to develop and finalise strategies, budgets and schedules.
