EVANS, Georgia (April 22, 2021) – Champions Retreat, a revered private golf club located just outside of Augusta, Ga. – and the only club in the world featuring three individually designed courses by Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus – announces the resurfacing of all putting greens and collars across all three courses.
With a commitment to excellence and just after hosting the first two rounds of the second Augusta National Women’s Amateur in championship condition, the property will undergo the greens renovation, replacing the Bentgrass surfaces with Tif-Eagle bermudagrass during the summer of 2021.
“While we’ve received phenomenal feedback on our courses during the 2021 Augusta National Women’s Amateur, we won’t rest on success and are dedicated to providing firm, fast, crisp and clean conditions year-round at Champions Retreat,” said General Manager Cameron Wiebe.
“After significant research and exploration, Tif-Eagle has proven to be the ideal choice for premier putting surfaces on our property, delivering the speed and consistency we necessitate for an enhanced golf experience.”
The schedule of the project over the summer has been carefully planned to minimize membership disruption and is slated for completion in the Fall of 2021.
