Golf course architect Rod Whitman has been selected to lead a renovation and redesign project at the Algonquin Golf Club in New Brunswick, Canada.
Whitman will rework a number of holes, tee boxes, bunkers and greens on the club’s 18-hole course.
Part of the Algonquin Resort, the course lies on a coastal location with views over the Bay of Fundy and the town of St Andrews.
“New golf course design is always a creative challenge,” said Whitman. “The Algonquin Resort Golf Club has a long and storied history and I am honoured to be entrusted to re-imagine this national legacy. I look forward to the opportunity to further enhance the golfing experience at this one-of a- kind, seaside resort.”
Initial preparatory work took place in the spring, and work will commence once the summer season is complete.
It is hoped that nine holes will reopen in early 2017, and the remaining holes in July 2017.
