Quaker Ridge Renovation Photos

Yesterday I went up to Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale, NY to check out the renovation that Gil Hanse is working on (construction also by Hanse and Hawk Shaw). The renovation focusing on green expansion, going back to the original Tillinghast size and shapes, a complete bunker renovation, tree removal, restoration of the 17th green complex, and restoring some of the intended Tillinghast shot values to holes that have been altered over time, most notably the double dogleg 14th. With the majority of the holes already receiving attention over the last few years, holes #2, 3, 6, 14, 15 mostly at the Northern end of the property were the focus of the last part of the renovation plan... [photos marked (2010) were taken yesterday, but renovated last year]

#9 was mostly restored in 2010, but the left side of the hole has been changed again with the alteration of the mounding on left. I'd bet fescues will be planted soon.
