Ft. Wayne, IN - In the days immediately preceding the first tournament of the 2014 Web.com Tour Finals, Sycamore Hills Golf Club received upwards of 11" of rain. Thanks to their switch to BBB, the bunkers were not a cause of concern for John Thompson, GCSAA and his staff. "The tour guys said the bunkers were as good as they've ever seen them and were impressed that they handled that much rain with such ease" said Thompson. He continued, "we couldn't wait to have the remaining bunkers completed with BBB."
Working with David Savic of Nicklaus Design, BBB licensed installers Green Tee Golf and Sanders Golf teamed to make wholesale improvements and completed Phase One in late 2013 and Phase Two in 2014. Consistently ranked in the Top 100 American golf courses, the changes to Sycamore Hills have been exciting not only for SHGC members, but Web.com tour players alike.
On a side note, Sycamore Hills GC now has the honor of having the largest single Better Billy Bunker to date: over 26,000 square feet! This massive bunker on hole #3 is pictured here during the renovation.
