Renovations Under Way at Crenshaw Cliffside

Austin American-Statesman golf writer Kevin Robbins writes on his Backspin blog that Barton Creek's Crenshaw Cliffside course is undergoing renovations:

The upper five inches of soil under the greens is being replaced, the resort reports. When finished, the surfaces will be covered with Champion bermudagrass, the same grass on the Palmer Lakeside and Fazio Canyons courses.

Some of the bunkers are being returned to their original form, as Ben Crenshaw and design partner Bill Coore sculpted them.

Two new back tees will be built, stretching the par-4 seventh hole to 375 yards and the par-4 14th — one of the best risk/reward holes in Travis County — to 323 yards.

The new projected yardage will be 6,650 yards.

That yardage is increased over the current 6,553 yards, with the red and middle tees also gaining some additional yardage.

Kevin says the work is expected to be completed sometime in September.
