Tripp Davis’s firm has been hired to prepare a master plan for a renovation and redesign of the golf course at the Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort and Spa.
Located in Boerne, Texas – about 12 miles outside the city of San Antonio – Tapatio Springs is home to an 18-hole course designed by Billy Johnson, which first opened in 1983.
Of the upcoming project, Davis said: “Tapatio Springs is in the Texas Hill Country and it’s a beautiful property with great rolling terrain, huge old live oaks, and great vistas. The golf course was originally well routed so there is a good foundation for us to work with in terms of updating the course.”
The current project includes enhancements to the existing driving range, enlarging tee boxes, reshaping greenside bunkers and leveling fairways to help improve irrigation.
Work is already underway, with the work on the driving range and the redesign of a third of the tees and a quarter of the bunkers set to be completed by the end of April.
Davis added: “While our focus will be to make the course more playable, our intent also is to provide an enjoyable golf experience for resort guests and local members.”
