The golf course at Cobblestone Creek Country Club reopens after renovation

The golf course at Cobblestone Creek Country Club, in Lawrenceville, N.J., reopened for play to members following the completion of a renovation project by Bobby Weed Golf Design.

The start of the project was the creation of a 14-acre infill development parcel identified by Bobby Weed Golf Design. As the result of a multi-million-dollar transaction, a national homebuilder will develop the land with 97 town home units. Each household will become at minimum a social member of Cobblestone Creek Country Club, offering an ongoing revenue stream for the club.

“The best golf design happens in the field, but it shows up on the bottom line as well,” said Bobby Weed. “It’s very gratifying that our creativity helped provide the financial spark for this transformative project.

“Seeing the results, I’m certain a number of private clubs could benefit from the progressive thinking employed at Cobblestone Creek.”

The land sale triggered comprehensive improvements to the entire golf course, including seven new holes and the relocated practice area. It also allowed for significant renovations to the clubhouse, the addition of an outdoor dining area and the creation of a new pool complex. More than 50 new members have already joined the club.

“Bobby Weed and his partner, Chris Monti, have created a modern-day golf course within a mature setting while preserving the traditional feel,” said Michael LaBrutto, PGA head professional at Cobblestone Creek. “And we now have one of the best driving ranges in Mercer County because Bobby Weed had the foresight to say, ‘This is where the range will go’ – on a parcel of seven acres tucked away off the beaten track, covered with trees.

Established in 1938, Cobblestone Creek (formerly known as Greenacres Country Club) is a private full-service club featuring an 18-hole golf course originally designed by Devereaux Emmet and redesigned by George Fazio in 1971.

Jeff Wetterling is the certified golf course superintendent of the course.

Bobby Weed Golf Design was selected for the innovative renovation and repurposing project due to the firm’s unique expertise in both golf course design and land development.

Total Turf Golf Services, from Philadelphia, was the golf course contractor and George Ley Co. was the irrigation contractor.
