Indian Creek Golf Club Anticipates Summer 2019 Completion for Course Renovations
Thanks to a May 2018 bond election, the City of Carrollton Parks & Recreation Department was awarded $22 million earmarked for facilities and parks. Of this, Indian Creek Golf Club was approved $4 million to update the 80-acre Lakes Course.
Golfers can look forward to a grand scale makeover to include new cart paths, a modern irrigation system, leveled and smoothed out tees and fairways plus brand new greens. This renovation will result in a more sustainable maintenance program and will dramatically enhance the recreational experience and enjoyment for all golfers who visit the Lakes Course at Indian Creek Golf Club.
Work for Phase I began Friday, December 14 and will continue through March 2019, with much of the focus on deconstruction of tees, greens, cart paths and the existing irrigation system. The second part of Phase I will continue with grading and shaping tees and fairways, installing mainline irrigation, as well as constructing 7’ concrete cart paths. The project also includes greens reconstruction per United States Golf Association (USGA) specifications to uphold healthy sustainable turf conditions; in addition, this will restore the intended design and shape of each green complex as mowing patterns and time lend to deterioration of original features.
Phase II is scheduled to begin in March 2019 and will primarily involve finish work. A hole-by-hole systems check will prompt the reseeding effort for all renovated turf areas. As a final step, after reseeding is completed, Indian Creek’s maintenance team will manage the grow-in process.For more information on these exciting improvements, visit indiancreekgolfclub.com.
