Terravita Golf Club Information 2023
Terravita Golf and Country Club reopened the golf course on November 1st, 2022 following a $8.5 million renovation. Golf course architect Phil Smith led the seven month renovation while Heritage Links performed the construction work.
Originally designed by Billy Casper and Greg Nash, Terravita opened for play in 1994. Developing the renovation master plan focused on the outdated irrigation system, bunkers and green complexes as well as turf improvements on the 28 year old course.
Membership approved the project in 2021 and work began April 1st, 2022. During construction all 18 greens were re-designed, rebuilt and grassed using TifEagle Bermuda grass; tee boxes were repositioned, fairways were reshaped and a new state of the art irrigation system was installed. All bunkers were also strategically repositioned, reshaped and rebuilt incorporating a technically advanced drainage and liner system featuring Capillary Concrete. This new generation lining method increase the speed at which water flows through the bunker, minimizing washouts, reducing maintenance and producing superior playability.
The feedback from the membership has been extremely positive.
This follows the recent $5.7 million Clubhouse renovation that was completed in 2019.
The current waiting list for golf memberships is approximately 9 as of April 1st, 2023.
