Florida muni job for Norman


Greg Norman’s design firm will begin an extensive renovation of the municipal Pines course in Pompano Beach, Florida in April.

The project will include a complete redesign of the Pines course, including landscape changes plus regrading and regrassing of all playing surfaces. The course, which will be rebranded as a Greg Norman Signature is tentatively scheduled to open in late 2012.

“We are extremely excited to be working with one of golf’s legendary players and his golf course design company to oversee the redesign of the city’s Pines course,” said Bob Loring, the course’s head golf professional.

This will be the Norman firm’s first design at a municipal golf course. “I was introduced to the sport of golf through public access golf courses in Australia, so this project and public golf are very special to me. I see this as the first of many municipal golf course design and renovation projects I would like to be involved with,” said Norman.
