Included in the Fiscal Year 2016 budget is the funding of $1.2 million to renovate the Winter Park golf course. The City Commission approved this funding based upon the research and recommendation of an appointed seven-member Golf Course Strategic Plan Task Force, formed in November 2014, to study the needs of our 101-year-old course.
During the year-long process, the task force held 29 meetings and spent many hours evaluating our course while researching others. This information helped formulate the recommendation to the City Commission in July 2015, to renovate the 9-hole golf course that would include the redesign and rebuilding of the greens, tees and fairways, replacement of the existing grass, and the installation of a complete new irrigation system.
The city issued a formal solicitation at the end of September 2015 and six responses were received. After careful review and presentations, in November, KCR Contracting, LLC was awarded the design/build contract for this project.
Due to the size of the renovation, the golf course is expected to be closed from March to September 2016, with a grand re-opening tentatively scheduled for the fall.
Thank you to the Golf Course Strategic Plan Task Force for their dedication to this project!
