A two-phase renovation project of the course at The Tryall Golf Club near Montego Bay, Jamaica, is now underway.

Led by Maryland-based golf course architect Andrew Green of Green Golf and Turf, the first phase of the work is focusing on the 18-hole course’s back nine, and is set to be completed by October 2016.

The focus will then shift to the front nine, where work is scheduled to begin next summer.

The course at The Tryall Golf Club was originally designed by Ralph Plummer and opened in 1961. The 6,800-yard layout is being renovated to help improve the shot value and variety of the holes.

Greens are being rebuilt to modern standards, while work will also be carried out to renovate the bunkering and surrounding grading.

“The renovation of The Tryall Golf Club course will build upon improvements we have instituted in the past,” said Ewan Peebles, director of Golf at The Tryall Golf Club. “With the new enhancements we are ensuring a new level of golf to keep pace with the rising expectations of contemporary golfers.”
