The City of Pompano Beach, Florida has selected Greg Norman Golf Course Design over numerous other golf course architects to re-design the city’s Pines course. The project, which will commence construction in April 2012 will include a complete redesign of the Pines Course, including landscape improvements, re-grading and re-grassing of all playing surfaces.
The extensive redesign work will result in a Greg Norman Signature Golf Course that will likely be considered among the top municipal courses in the state of Florida. The city’s new Greg Norman Signature golf course is tentatively scheduled to open in late Fall of 2012.
“We are extremely excited to be working with one of golf’s legendary players and his golf course design company to oversee the redesign of the City’s Pines Golf Course,” said Bob Loring who is the Head Golf Professional at the course. “We are certain that Greg’s involvement and his commitment to excellence will produce a signature golf course that the City of Pompano Beach can be proud of.”
“I was introduced to the sport of golf through public access golf courses in Australia, so this project and public golf are very special to me. I see this as the first of many municipal golf course design and renovation projects that I would like to be involved with,” said Norman.
This will be Norman’s first municipal golf course project in theUnited States and it is fitting that the project is in Pompano Beach, just a short drive from Norman’s home in Hobe Sound, Florida.
