Greens Remodel at Emerald Bay Club

Emerald Bay Club in Bullard, Texas, is undergoing a renovation to its greens. The club hired Turf Solutions Group for the project.

Now that the first phase of the greens renovation is nearly complete, Emerald Bay is happy with the work. Bob Breedlove, an Emerald Bay board member, said, "We couldn't be happier with Turf Solutions Group. They completely surprised us with their thoroughness, professionalism, and concern for doing the job right. I'd absolutely recommend them to anyone in the country."

A greens renovation is never an easy undertaking for a golf course, but that is particularly true for a private club serving members living in the adjoining residential community. When Emerald Bay determined it was time to bring their greens up to United States Golf Association (USGA) specifications, it first had to convince the members.

"When we announced that we intended to renovate the greens, there was quite a bit of resistance initially from the membership," explained Breedlove. "But when they saw the quality of TSG's work and the minimal disturbance, the members started getting anxious to play."

The greens renovation on the first nine holes is complete, and members will be playing on them soon. After the first nine holes are ready for open, play will then switch to the first nine holes, while TSG renovates the second half of the course.
