Groundbreaking has taken place as a renovation project gets underway at the Landa Park Golf Course in New Braunfels, Texas.

The project will see some holes redesigned, and the building of new greens. New tees will also be added, as will some bunkering to the course’s fairways.

Houston-based contractor Heritage Links has been hired for the construction of the project, which will also see the contouring work to the fairways, work done to improve or replace cart paths, a new short-game practice area and a new irrigation system.

The design will also see the judicious use of native grasses in ‘out of play’ areas.

The course at Landa Park was opened in 1938 as a nine-holer, and a second nine was added in 1969, designed by architects Dave Bennett and Leon Howard.

A full masterplan of the project was drawn up by Finger Dye Spann Golf Course Architects earlier this year and can be found on the City of New Braunfels website.
