When:                  Thursday, April 6, 2017 at 10 a.m.

 

Where:                 Whispering Pines Golf Course

                                18412 Highway 613, Hurley

 

The $1.2 Million project includes construction of the new clubhouse, demolition of the current clubhouse, and improvements to the golf course parking lot.  It will be funded by the County’s General Funds and is expected to be complete in 335 days.

 

Some of the amenities golfers can look forward to in the new 3,417 sq. ft. clubhouse are a dedicated pro shop, indoor and covered outdoor dining, convenient lockers in each bathroom, and a larger kitchen that will allow for more menu items.  In addition, the County is in the process of creating a new practice green and leveling out the driving range tee area – this work is being done primarily in-house by Golf Course and Recreation employees.

 

The public is invited to attend the groundbreaking which will be located just North of the current clubhouse at 18412 Highway 613.

 

Eley Guild Hardy Architects designed the new clubhouse and will oversee the project. TerryMark Construction was hired as the contractor.
