The Peninsula Club in Cornelius, N.C., broke ground on an extensive golf course renovation project on Oct. 2, 2023.

Led by Beau Welling Design (BWD), the project is set to finish by October 2024 and features significant renovations to both the 18-hole championship golf course as well as other facilities. The renovation, led by Beau Welling and Chase Webb, senior design associate at BDW, includes major adjustments to the course strategy.

Some additional updates to the course include:

  • Regrassing with Tifeagle bermudagrass on the greens and Tahoma31 bermudagrass on the rest of the course including green surrounds, fairways, rough and tees.
  • Infrastructure overhaul and updates including a new state-of-the-art irrigation system, upgraded drainage and new cart paths.
  • Strategic tree clearing for expanded sightlines across the course.
  • Addition of a native fescue mix to out-of-play areas to provide a new feel while also decreasing water reliance.
  • Net reduction of bunker square footage as part of a larger recalibration of bunker strategy.

Beyond the golf course renovation, BWD assisted the club with campus planning that will lead to considerable golf practice areas and amenity improvements. BWD is expanding the club’s golf practice areas and is adding a performance center with two teaching bays. The project also includes improvements to the parking area and the golf course maintenance facility.
