Construction Begins on New 10-Hole Par-Three Course, Summer 2020 Opening Planned
To facilitate a firm, fast ground game, the course will feature fescues from the tees to the edges of the receptive bentgrass greens where golfers can use strategic slopes and banks to feed shots toward the hole. Rhebb says the greens will take on a variety of subtle shapes, many being bowl-shaped and some resembling catcher’s mitts or table tops.
“When you come to Forest Dunes, we want you to have a good time,” says Thompson, who says he’ll happily allow music, bare feet and eightsomes on the new par-three course if that’s what it takes to make the game more accessible and fun. “What Keith and Riley are building is going to bring a new life and energy to the property. It’s going to bring people together and make their time more enjoyable.”
