"Nuzzo and Mahaffey solved this problem by creating an innovative solution that should contribute to the finished golf offering being usable by a much larger proportion of Grand Oaks residents that would be the case with a traditional 18-hole course (and also by green fee visitors – the facility will be public). He routed a full sized nine hole course – Nine Grand – across the main part of the property, but put a nine hole par three loop – Three Grand – and a large putting green – still to be named, but which will have a routed nine hole putting course on it – in the corner segment.
The previously wooded site is basically flat, but careful clearing work has revealed interesting small-scale contours in some areas, while a series of wandering creeks (or bayous as they are called in the area) create extra ground interest, especially on the par three second hole on the main nine. Holes five and six will play around a 45 acre lake currently being excavated to provide fill for the housing development, while the ninth hole is a 610 yard par five featuring a beautiful Principal’s Nose bunker complex in the second landing area."
Our client wanted his own golf course, just for himself, in the middle of his ranch near the Gulf coast of Texas.
He played almost every day for 10 years.
The very few who got to visit loved it too.
