Eagle Mountain Golf Club in Fountain Hills, Arizona, has completed a four-month renovation project on its Scott Miller-designed course.

The project began in mid-May and focused on improving agronomic conditions and bunker playability. Drainage and landing areas were renovated to support turf health and produce firmer and faster conditions.

Bunkers have been modified, reshaped and rebuilt to incorporate a drainage and liner system featuring Capillary Concrete. Eagle Mountain’s agronomy team and Casa Verde Agronomic Solutions also performed an extensive soil remediation project aimed at improving long-term turf quality and playing conditions.

“We are extremely pleased with the results of the renovation and enhancement project at Eagle Mountain Golf Club,” said Dave Nicholls, senior vice president of science and agronomy for Troon. “The team at Casa Verde Golf did an exemplary job with the bunker renovation and the irrigation enhancements, completing the project on time and under budget all while working around play.”

Phil Green, executive vice president of managed properties west at Troon, said: “We believe these refinements will help elevate the club back to the top of both resident and visitor ‘must play’ lists.”
