After finishing renovations on the Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio, Duininck Golf has begun renovations on the Canyons Course, also at TPC San Antonio.

Like its sister course, the Oaks Course, which underwent a complete bunker renovation in 2021, the bunkers on the Canyons course needed an upgrade to maintain playing conditions to TPC Network standards, according to Matt Flory, general manager, TPC San Antonio.

“Restoring the bunkers on the Canyons course will restore strategy, playability and maintainability and elevate the course even more as we look to provide optimal playing conditions for Tour players, our club members and resort guests,” Flory said.

Chris Kleinsmith, project manager for the Oaks Course and now the Canyons Course renovations, welcomes the opportunity to return to San Antonio to work with TPC project manager Rich Brogan and the TPC Network.

“While the Oaks project was more focused on overall infrastructure, the work on The Canyons is solely a bunker restoration project. The existing sand, drainage and surrounding turf will be removed with the faces and floors of the bunkers reshaped to match the original course design,” Kleinsmith said. “Most of the work on The Oaks was not visible. The overall functionality of the course was improved, but artistically our revisions were not nearly as visible as the enhancements on The Canyons will be.”

“Projects like this are all about creating consistently high-quality conditions across all areas of the golf course. Golfers appreciate that consistency and project managers like Chris are laser-focused on the details that matter,” Judd Duininck, general manager of Duininck Golf, said. “Players notice and care about the subtleties. Whether it’s the speed of the greens, the lies in the fairway or the firmness of sand, we want all facets of the experience to be equally and noticeably great. The current conditions of the bunkers do not afford the maintenance staff the opportunity to provide that critical consistency, and that’s the change we need to make here.”
