Next Generation Renewal in North Carolina
The project, led by Beau Welling Design, is scheduled to be completed by October 2024 and will include major renovations to the 18-hole championship golf course as well as other amenities.
“After two years of planning and preparation, we are excited to get started on a project that will create a new feel and playing experience for the golf course as well as other amenities for club members,” he said. Bo Welling, founder and CEO of Beau Welling Design. “We are proud to add to the tradition of excellence that the Peninsula FC has nurtured for decades, and believe this project will enhance the guest and membership experience on and off the field.”
While the golf course’s course and footprint will remain largely the same, many golf features have been modified to provide a memorable and playable strategic golf experience for members. The renovation, led by Welling and BWD Senior Design Associate Chase Webbincludes significant modifications to course strategy that encourage shot making and creativity from tee to green.
Additional major updates to the course include:
- Regrass with TifEagle Bermudagrass on the greens and Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass on the rest of the course, including the surrounding greens, fairways, rough and tees.
- Infrastructure repair and modernization, including a new irrigation system, improved drainage, and new cart tracks.
- Strategic tree removal to expand sightlines across the golf course as well as open up stunning views of Lake Norman.
- Adding a native fescue mix to the off-play areas will provide a new feel to the course with more eye-catching visuals while also reducing reliance on water.
- Net reduction in bunker space as part of a larger recalibration of bunker strategy.
BWD also helped the club plan the campus that will result in a large golf practice area and amenities improvements. The club’s golf practice areas will be expanded and a performance center with two teaching arenas will be added to the amenities. A new pro shop will be constructed attached to the Performance Center. The existing pro shop will be converted into a new adult membership food and beverage offering. In addition, four new tennis courts and six pickleball courts will be added to the tennis complex.
The project will also include improvements to the parking area and golf course maintenance facility. Nick McLennan He is the Director of Golf Courses at the Peninsula Club.
