Two million dollars worth of improvements have gone underway at the Celebration Golf Club. These improvements will include having the golf course bunkers completely redone. Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Robert Trent Jones Jr. co-designed the course, which was built ten years ago. Golf Digest Magazine has given the course four and a half stars and Florida Golf News has ranked the course twelfth.
The club’s general manager, Gene Garrote, is hoping that the course will have a five star status once the improvements have been completed. Completion is scheduled for October. Garrote reports that one third of the new improvements is for new equipment, including completely new golf carts.
However there are other improvements being made. One of these is repaving the course pathways and driveway, installing aqua greens and Astroturf on the driving range and making improvements to the bridges that are on the course. More upgrades will be added in the summer of 2008.
