Fox Hollow Golf Club
With the 2016 season upon us, the Fox Hollow grounds crew will look to continue our momentum of bringing golf patrons great playing conditions for a reasonable price. The course has made it through the winter in great shape, and an early spring will allow us to hit the ground running. Golfers who haven't been out to Fox Hollow in the last year will discover quite a few additions and improvements that have been made. Fairway drainage systems have been installed on our wettest fairways, including most recently the 6th, 10th, and 12th fairways. We will also continue to add drains to wetter areas on the course to alleviate problem wet spots and allow golfers to travel "off the cart paths" even sooner after a rain event than ever before.
Another noticeable improvement on the course has been the condition of the sand traps. We have been working on re-edging and shaping many bunker faces along with adding sand to many traps where needed. This is a constant effort that needs to be addressed, even though a bunker hazard is the last place a golfer wants to find their ball ! This year, look for the 4th and 6th fairway bunkers to be re-edged along with drainage installed and sand added, also the old 16th green side bunker on the left will be completely renovated. We have also been working on adding new teeing areas to better compliment the different skill levels of our golfers. Last year we added and renovated new tees on the driving range, and the 7th, 11th, and 13th holes. This year, look for new and familiar teeing areas on the 10th, 12th, and 15th holes. Golfers should also notice the new clean and maintained look of certain water features including the removal of trees and brush to bring the pond to the left of the 10th fairway into play off the tee.
Hackers looking to work on their game should utilize our driving range complete with distance targets and two full size perennial ryegrass teeing areas. Anyone looking for golf instruction should contact Michael Hersch to setup a lesson at the Fox Hollow practice facility. With our friendly clubhouse staff, awesome weekly specials, and a constantly improving golf course, it's easy to see what the buzz is about ! Plan your tee time today and come out to enjoy the atmosphere at Fox Hollow Golf Club.
