Down in the column is this nugget of info: Brack is going to shut down for a year for an overhaul. Oliver writes:
Brackenridge, which turned 90 last month, is about to get a needed facelift.
In coming days, the city is expected to officially announce that the renowned expanse will be shut down for a year or more, beginning next spring, to undergo an aggressive renovation.
As part of a planned multimillion-dollar outlay championed by deputy city manager Pat DiGiovanni and councilmen Chip Haass and Art Hall, fairways will be resodded, some bunkers overhauled and a new irrigation system installed, among other improvements.
The whole column, with Crenshaw reminiscing and interesting historical tidbits about Brackenridge, is a good read. But the part about Brack being renovated is what should catch every San Antonio golfer's eye.
I eagerly await details of the project.
