The course at Tierra Del Sol Golf Club in Pharr, Texas, has reopened following a US$1 million renovation project.
Work began at the Dave Bennett-designed course in July, and much of the efforts focused on improving the course’s greens, with bermudagrass being put in place, as well as a new sprinkler system.
The work was carried out by Signet Golf Associates, based in Pinehurst, North Carolina. The project cost US$1 million and was funded by the city of Pharr.
“We completely redid our greens from the bottom up; they drain beautifully,” course manager Raul Garza told The Monitor. “We were able to witness a lot of rain in recent days, and the drainage is tremendous.”
Tierra Del Sol plays 6,767 yards and is a par 72. The course’s tee boxes have been levelled out and a new retaining wall has been constructed on the sixth hole as part of the project.
