Project: Hole #9 Green Complex and #14 Creek Bed Renovation Project
Client: The Ranch Golf Club
Completed: Fall 2015
Location: Edmonton, Alberta
In Fall of 2015, the Ranch Golf Club commissioned Ohnysty Crough Golf Design to undertake the complete renovation of the 9th hole and to improve the aesthetics of a natural creek bed on the 14th hole. Tasked with improving the existing turf growing conditions, playability, circulation and overall aesthetic of the existing golf hole, OC Golf designed and implemented a new 7000sqft green complex, greenside bunkers, fairway and rough surrounds, tee complex and drainage installations. The result is a demanding mid-length par 4 featuring a large creatively contoured green complex, greenside bunker and multiple bailout areas featuring interesting contour that will put recovery shots to the test.
In addition, OC Golf Design completed a complete creek bed renovation project on the 14th hole. Working within the natural alignment of the creek, the renovation project included the addition of two stone bridges, natural river stone rock installation and various drainage improvements.
