Windsor Embarks on Major Golf Course Renovation This Spring
Windsor is pleased to announce the official start to a complete renovation of its 18-hole links-style golf course. Originally designed by renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr., the course will be revisited by Jones and his team to create an even more exciting playing experience for Members.
The course, which is often referred to as “Windsor’s Serengeti” for its undulating panorama of native trees bordering gentle, rolling fairways, has officially closed for the season and the renovation is now underway. One of the few links-style golf courses in the U.S., the refreshed par 72 course will encompass more than 120 acres.
As part of the planned refurbishment, the course will receive a complete re-grassing across all playing surfaces and practice areas. A new state-of-the-art irrigation system will be installed, which will offer better coverage while reducing overall water consumption, alongside a new sub-air system that will greatly impact greens’ drainage. There will also be a reestablishment of the vegetation diversity around the natural planting areas, especially in the littoral shelf areas located in the water hazards throughout the course.
“It is an exciting time for golf at Windsor and an honor to be working with Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and Bruce Charlton, President and Chief Design Officer, to bring back some of the original subtleties of the course with a goal of significantly enhancing the golf experience for Members,” said Jeff Steele, Windsor’s Director of Golf.
“The entire team at Robert Trent Jones II is delighted to have an opportunity to recapture the design intent and update golf holes in concert with today’s game,” said Bruce Charlton. “Windsor has been a great source of pride for our organization since its inception and we are very excited to be polishing this gem.”
The renovation will commence through the summer with a reopening planned for early November 2019 aligned with the start of the new season. With no tee times and pristine natural beauty, Windsor’s golf course is a treasured and accessible amenity for all Members and their guests.
