“Golf Course Review, Texas Style”

Glenwood Springs, CO (September 14, 2006) – Golf Club Consulting, Inc. was retained by Colorado Mountain Development, Inc. of Denver to help review agronomic goals at the company project of Villages of Lone Oak Golf Club, located south of Greenville, Texas. 

In 2004, Colorado Mountain Development Inc. purchased this stunning property and has since completely redesigned the entire development to increase its quality and character. 

“The golf course is key to the success of our development and we have asked Golf Club Consulting, Inc. to periodically review our golf course grassing and grow-in efforts,” said Jim Petre.  “If there’s any problems, we’re going to address them proactively.”

Villages of Lone Oak sits on gently rolling terrain on the eastern shores of Lake Tawakoni about 90 miles east of Dallas.  Jeff Brauer, who has accumulated many “best new golf course awards” in the recent past, including The Quarry at Giants Ridge and The Wilderness at Fortune Bay, both in Minnesota, is designing the golf course.

“Texas is a very difficult place to grow quality turf because of the poor soils, undesirable irrigation water and large temperature fluctuations,” said Richard Eide, Principal of Golf Club Consulting, Inc.  “The area is experiencing a severe drought which compounds the issues further especially with turf maturation, irrigation and weed intrusion,” Eide added.

“Initially, the priorities that we’re going to focus on relates to turf grow-in, monitoring construction specifications and cost streamlining,” said Petre

“The course review is scheduled to happen in the next couple weeks and will be on-going until the course is operational.
