Fall projects, 2011.

The restored par-three 8th hole at Victoria Golf Club
A busy fall schedule begins Tuesday.  Seventeen days on the road, with stops at:

The Oakville Golf Club, Oakville, Ontario: We've been working on plans for golf course improvement at Oakville since 2009. Tuesday evening, our plan will be presented to the club's membership, hopefully in prelude of starting some some work on this charming old, 1921 George Cumming-designed course, near Toronto, in spring 2012.

Blackhawk Golf Club, Edmonton, Alberta: Since assisting Rod Whitman with the design and construction of Blackhawk (currently ranked 25th on SCOREGolf magazine's list of the top-100 courses in Canada), I've maintained a wonderful 10-year relationship with the club, returning to Edmonton annually to assist with keeping the course top-notch. Working with golf course superintendent, Duane Sharpe, we'll be cleaning out some bunkers this fall, making a few minor tweaks.

Victoria Golf Club, Victoria, British Columbia: Our on-going work at historic Victoria Golf Club (est. 1893) also continues this fall. Over the coming weeks, golf course superintendent, Paul Robertson, and I will be orchestrating restorative-based improvements at holes 1, 13 and 17. That'll be eleven green sites restored, since January 2009. This project is scheduled to continue beginning early in 2012. More detail, from Victoria, shortly.

+ MGCD has another new project - redo of an existing golf course - in southwestern Ontario beginning this fall. More detail on this project soon, too. Stay tuned.
