Fazio discusses Osprey Point Renovations 2

Course Architect Tom Fazio discusses renovations of Osprey Point with (l to r) Head Professional Jim Kelechi, Superintendant Steve Miller, Resort President Roger Warren & Director of Golf Brian Gerard

 

We are pleased to announce that, beginning in May 2014, under the directions of course architect Tom Fazio, the resort will initiate major renovations to the Osprey Point Golf Course.

Using what we have learned at The Ocean Course, all of Osprey Point’s greens, tees and fairways would be converted to Paspalum, the salt-tolerant strain of grass that is currently on The Ocean Course.  The playing surface provided by Paspalum received high praise from both players and announcers during the PGA Championship.

Additionally, all of the bunkering on the course will be reworked as part of the renovation.  According to Director of Golf, Brian Gerard, Osprey Point has always been one of the favorite courses on the resort, offering both great scenery as well as challenging test of golf.  ”The proposed changes will greatly enhance both the aesthetics as well as the playing conditions of the course, making Osprey Point a ‘must-play’ course on the island.”

The course is scheduled to reopen in late September 2014.
