Doak has a team, but their website he normally is on site for I think 20 days. Clayton has been doing a lot of work for Doak here in Australia recently, but he is not part of this project. It will be managed by Doak's US-based team. Construction will start June 2018 and take 4 months. It will then grow in over the summer and be ready to play March 2019. They plan on reusing all existing Ocean turf, hence the lower cost and quick turnaround.


I thought they had already torn it up, so why wait until next year to start?

No, not at all. It is still fully in play. Everything to date is just planning. The approval yesterday by the members was around conceptual drawings. There is a chance they might be adjusted as they work through the process over the next 12 months.

Anyone see the plans that came out today? What is up with the back-to-back par 3s at 15 & 16?

 

Yeah I saw that on Monday - that looks a bit weird. I really enjoyed it... first time in 7 months I played it tho! Played the Old in the arvo as well. :) I honestly don't understand why it's "hated" so much but I am not good enough to really understand the issues I think.
