The West Course at the Fountains Country Club will be closed until mid-October as the club undergoes a $2 million renovation project.
The club is trying to get the course back to its original design by widening bunkers, restructuring fairways, and leveling parts of the course. According to General Manager Ricardo Catarino, by reshaping the bunkers and fairways, the greens will regain some of the visual appeal that it had when it originally opened in the 1970s.
The plan is not only to return the greens to their original size and shape, but also re-build the tee boxes to make the course more playable for less experienced golfers.
In addition, the club will also be fixing the clubhouse roof, expanding the outdoor eating areas, and revamping the kitchen facilites.
The West course has been closed since May 4th and will remain closed until the mid-October re-open date. The south course is also currently closed for maintenance and is set to re-open in July. The north course will remain open until the south course re-opens. It will then close for its maintenance project.
