Mizner Country Club renovates its golf course


By: Marisa Gottesman Associate Editor
Mizner Country Club is spending some green on its greens.
The club’s Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course is undergoing a $6 million renovation, which is scheduled to be completed by Dec. 1.
It is the first major renovation to the course since 2000. When completed, the course will feature new Tifeagle grass, fairways will be replaced with Celebration Bermuda grass, bunkers will be rebuilt with new drainage techniques and rock walls will be added.
Club officials said the updates are in a response to both the natural wear and tear of the course and to respond to the way the game has changed. They say the renovation will also help players request for fast, sure-playing surfaces, which has been requested as the game has changed with more powerful clubs and ergonomic balls.
Kipp Schulties Golf Design is in charge of design and RyanGolf Corporation is the contractor for the project.
During the renovation, Mizner has arranged playing privileges for its members with 20 neighboring private clubs.
