Bobby Weed Golf Design has completed its renovation of the Golden Marsh course at Harbour Ridge Yacht and Country Club, in Palm City, Fla. The course reopened for play Nov. 15.

“Members will enjoy and recognize the John Dodge-developed project and original 1984 Joe Lee–Golden Marsh layout,” said Bobby Weed. “The updated course has more enhanced native features and coquina rock walls, along with greater variety and visual appeal.”

The project included reconstructing the green complexes; updating the appearance and placement of the bunkers; regrassing the entire layout; installing a new irrigation system; underbrushing the roughs and out-of-play areas; and replacing acres of maintained, irrigated turf with pine straw and coquina shell. Construction began on April 2 with Classic Golf and Nutt Irrigation as contractors.

The revitalized Golden Marsh course will join the River Ridge course, Harbour Ridge’s other 18-hole layout. River Ridge was originally designed by Pete and P.B. Dye, allowing Harbour Ridge to join TPC Sawgrass (Stadium/Valley) and Omni Amelia Island Plantation as multi-course properties that feature the work of both Weed and his legendary mentor.
