2022 Bunker Improvements
What are we doing?
We are removing some bunkers, changing and re-shaping others, and even adding in a couple of new ones. We are also adding all-new drainage and putting a rubber liner under the sand called Polylast.
Why are we doing it?
The average golf course bunker has a life span of 15 – 20 years. The Oaks’ bunkers are technically 20 years old this year. Erosion plugged drainage, and wear & tear has made the need for an overhaul of our bunkers.
Who is doing it?
Our architect who built the course, Greg Martin, is working with Kenton Rhodes, a golf course contractor from Milton, on the plan and build.
How long will it last?
The bunker project should wrap up in August. Once this project is complete, we will be turning our attention to the green on hole #2 and re-shaping the green. We will then work on the tee boxes on hole #2. That project will last into next year.
A Course Created for Every Kind of Golfer
Designed by Greg Martin, the course plays 6,736 yards and is par-3 strong. Six varied par 3s are mixed with five par 5s and seven, rather than the standard 12, par 4s to yield a par 71. Bent grass fairways, tees and greens give the tract a country club feel, as does its thick rough and true-rolling putting surfaces.
Here at The Oaks, you’ll find creative bunkering, wide fairway landing areas and quality, uniquely-sloped greens, all set naturally into the surrounding landscape. And as the name implies, you’ll see over 250 mature oak trees dominating the property.
It was owner John Blaska’s intention to develop a golf course that was appropriate treatment for the landscape as well as an engaging golf experience. I believe we accomplished that.”
