The Golf Club at Westwood plans new design for course
Houston Business Journal

The Golf Club at Westwood has retained several companies to assist in redesigning its golf course, originally built in 1928.

Architect Keith Foster of Keith Foster Golf Course Design is planning the redesign, ES Partners is managing the existing course's renovation, and Lincoln, Neb.-based Landscapes Unlimited is providing construction.

Foster, who also designed the course at The Tradition Course at Cypresswood, has designed a simple, clean and classic course surrounded by 160 acres of parkland located near downtown and the Galleria. The course will feature conventional square tees and handcrafted bunkers, both reminiscent of early 20th century designs.

A signature element will be a 20-foot wide barranca that meanders through the center of the property. Holes will play to and over the barranca, offering a 16-foot elevation change and making the course more dynamic and dramatic.

The renovation will also incorporate an irrigation system and turf grasses. The practice center will be reoriented and enlarged with an oversized hitting area, separate short game facility and putting green. Wetlands and lakes will be dispersed along the fairways throughout the course.

Construction is scheduled to be completed by November 2003.
