The reshaping at The Village Club of Sands Point is complete for 2015! What an awesome early birthday present it was to complete my first solo project as both architect and shaper, finishing the day before I turned 29! We still have to do something with holes #3, 4, and 5, but have left those for another time as we hopefully will be making some even bigger changes to these Many thanks to all those who helped!
Back in the Met Area for the rest of the year, Jaeger Kovich (Proper Golf) is working with Hanse Golf Design again, restoring Ridgewood Country Club's bunkers to their 1935 Ryder Cup fame... We even started on Monday July, 13, the day A.W. Tillinghast was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame!
Jaeger Kovich and Proper Golf are very excited, as the bunker renovation is now underway! The first project as both architect and shaper, Jaeger is hoping to make significant improvements with both the playability and aesthetics of the bunkers. Long neglected, Jaeger is working with superintendent Mike Benz, to do the work mostly in house, and deliver a set of hazards the members will be proud of.

If you find yourself in The Deep South, come see the new course for Mossy Oak, under construction in Mississippi. Shaping for Hanse Golf Design, the course will draw inspiration from Shinnecock Hills and Alister MacKenzie's Palmetto Golf Club, another Southern Jewel.
Pictures of the renovation at Vineyard Golf Club are finally up on the website. With Massachusetts finally thawing out from a long winter, we are looking forward to getting back to the Vineyard sometime in April for a few small projects before they open for the season.
... The Village Club of Sands Point project has also been added to the website under design.
