Sand Springs, Oklahoma
In 2019, PDG/HGCD was engaged by the City of Sand Springs to renovate a course they had previously worked on twenty years prior. Because full greens reconstruction was out of budget for the project for the municipally owned and operated golf course, PDG/HGCD was tasked with finding an economical method of greens renovation with limited funding.
Soil tests revealed a thick organic layer and topdressing layer on top of the original pristine USGA constructed greens cavities. Removing the top built-up layers exposed the clean material below and restored the original putting surfaces at a fraction of the cost of full greens reconstruction, while also recovering over 30% of the greens square footage that had shrunk over time. Additional work included reshaping and rebuilding all sand bunkers on a course with an updated, rugged style to fit the surrounding landscape, as well as tree removal, tee expansion and cart trail replacement. Even as construction kicked off at the very beginning of the pandemic, the project was completed on time and without a single change order. Towards the end of the successful project, the Owner was able to use a completely untouched construction contingency to expand the scope of work.
