Dusenberry Design marked the completion of their $2.5 million renovation of the Palm Beach Gardens Golf Course on 7th December with the Eighth Annual Mayor’s Veterans Golf Classic. The Mayor and City officials participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by the fundraising tournament. The course officially opened to the public on 9th December.
The grand opening of the course was a short 180 days from the start of construction. Dusenberry Design oversaw the comprehensive renovation of the golf course by participating not only in the planning but also the day to day management of the design process.
Dusenberry Design provided extensive field supervision as part of a “Resident Architect” role in the project.
“We have two philosophies that guide and shape the direction of Dusenberry Design,” said design partner Matt Dusenberry. “First, we only take on a limited number of high quality projects. This allows us to dedicate the time and personnel necessary in order to deliver to our clients an exceptional finished product.
“Secondly, we believe strongly that great golf courses are built in the field and we emphasize project delivery. That’s why we deliver Resident Architect services and this was a key component of the Palm BeachGardens renovation.”
Matt Dusenberry continued, “The Resident Architect role was essential for delivering this project on time, on budget, and in keeping with the design concept we agreed upon with the City. It’s this attention to detail in the day to day construction of the course that separates great projects from good projects.”
The project was a collaborative effort between city officials and Dusenberry Design, incorporating feedback from public stakeholders from the city of Palm Beach Gardens. The focus was on delivering improved playing conditions for the golfer
“Although the bones and structure of the course were maintained, the golfers will be getting all new playing surfaces from tee to green. Improving the playing surfaces and improving the overall golf experience for the player was the main goal of the project. Matt and I worked closely with the City to deliver a design concept that was financially sustainable and we’re confident that they’ll see improved revenues and an improved reputation in the South Florida public golf market,” said design partner Tad Burnett. “When the City selected us for this project, we took seriously our responsibility to deliver a renovation that would meet their goals. I’ve been on-site daily during the 3-4 months of construction and it’s really satisfying to see the end result.”
