Back at VGC.

Restored tee shot angle at the par-three 13th hole.
Following nearly a week in Edmonton, I'm back at Victoria Golf Club, where we've slowly been chipping away at restorative-based improvements to one of Canada's most historic golf courses (est. 1893).

Our work at VGC began in January 2009. To date, we've completed work at nine greens sites - bunkers, green surface expansion, adjustments to fairway mowing patterns, etc. This time around we're working on holes 1 and 17, and restoring the tee shot angle at the par-three 13th hole (click on image to enlarge).

When I arrived at VGC early this morning, I was anxious to see the results of our last project and couldn't be more impressed with the look of holes 11, 12 and 18. Fantastic - thanks to golf course superintendent Paul Robertson, his assistant Derek Sheffield, and their crew. We design and build golf, but then leave things to guys like Paul and Derek who subsequently make us look really, really good. I'm very grateful for their efforts and passion.  

I intend to post more photos of works in progress and completed, at VGC, over the coming week and more. So, stay tuned.
