Chart Hills Golf Club has officially commenced the second phase of its ambitious renovation project, showcasing the club's commitment to continuous improvement and investment.

Over the coming months, extensive refurbishments to tee boxes, as well as the completion of a new par-3 course and putting green, will be carried out.

The renovation work will focus on refining the course's tee boxes by undertaking a complete overhaul. Starting with the standard playing tees - blue, yellow, and red, three tee boxes per hole will be re-laid and leveled. Following completion of the initial set of tee boxes, the renovation team will progress to the remaining holes, ensuring uniformity across the entire course.

Similar to the fairway sand-capping project undertaken in 2021, the tee box renovation process will involve stripping down to the soil and establishing optimal levels before installing additional drainage where necessary. Next, a layer of four inches of sand will be compacted on top of the soil, ultimately allowing the club's skilled greenkeeping team to lay the new turf. These renovations will result in impeccably maintained tee boxes that can withstand all-weather conditions and foot traffic throughout the year.

Simultaneously, the club is excited to announce the finalization of the Sir Nick Faldo-designed par-3 course, comprising six holes with distances ranging from 50 to 100 yards. This exceptional short game loop, inspired by the renowned career of the former world number one, will offer a wide range of challenges and design elements drawn from iconic holes at esteemed golfing destinations such as St Andrews, Augusta National, and the main course at Chart Hills.

Furthermore, a state-of-the-art 668 square meter putting green, envisioned and brought to life by Faldo Design, has been officially opened for use. This impressive putting green, located adjacent to the first tee, features elements from Sir Nick Faldo's favorite greens in major wins at St Andrews, Augusta National, and Muirfield. Notably, it includes the famous "valley of sin," testing golfers' skills and precision. The new putting green has been available for use since August 1st.

In a departure from previous renovation projects that necessitated temporary course closures, Chart Hills Golf Club will remain open throughout the duration of this second phase. This strategic decision ensures that members and visitors can continue to enjoy the course while experiencing the ongoing enhancements with minimal disruption.

With its unwavering emphasis on quality, Chart Hills Golf Club aims to offer an even more exceptional golfing experience as the renovation project progresses. The club's commitment to continually invest in its facilities demonstrates a dedication to providing golfers with an exceptional playing environment for years to come.

“We’re extremely excited to be working on another important phase in the enhancement of facilities at Chart Hills,” said General Manager, Anthony Tarchetti.

“When we closed the course in 2020 to initiate our fairway sand-capping project, Chart Hills proceeded to undergo a complete transformation, and this project is about building on that foundation and continuing to improve the experience we can offer. This next stage is about improving the fine details of the course, which we know golfers love and appreciate, and will no doubt cement us as one of the best golf venues in the southeast.”
