Estero, FL – The West Bay Club has recently announced that its members have approved a $4 million renovation of the Pete Dye designed championship golf course with completion expected by November 2018.
“The primary focus of the design will be to enhance the greens and rebuild the bunkering, “ said Jeff Raimer, Director of Golf. “Drainage improvements will also be made to support improved conditioning and playability. During the renovation, the bulk of the course will be re-grassed with environmentally friendly, state-of-the-art turf-grass. The renovation will add modern design elements and deliver exceptional playing conditions for the membership.”
Added Brian Schultz, West Bay Club General Manager, “This renovation will help ensure that our course is competitive in the local marketplace and will increase the desirability of our Golf Club and entire community for years to come. The investment will also translate into enhanced property values for each home owner.”
The Club has commissioned Fry/Straka Global Golf Course Design to spearhead the project. The firm is a partnership with worldwide reach in award-winning golf course design. Their portfolio includes Calusa Pines in Naples and Wisconsin’s Erin Hills, home of the 2017 U.S. Open.
Located west of U.S. 41 in Estero, Florida, West Bay Club is a gated luxury golf community with more than 500 acres of nature preserves and wetlands.
