Tee Time for a Do-Over
Even great courses take a mulligan every now and then, from layout changes to full remodels. That’s why we’re celebrating Mulligan Day with a few tracks that have earned another shot (or two) at becoming one of your favorites.
Davenport, Florida’s ChampionsGate celebrated the reopening of their International Course on October 1st after a full rejuvenation effort. From the complete restoration of all 18 greens to firmer, faster playing conditions and improved year-round playability, ChampionsGate has made some major golfer-focused enhancements that make it a must-play track in the Orlando area.
Set amidst the rolling hills and stunning scenery of the Fredericksburg area, Cannon Ridge reopened in June of this year after taking a complete “do-over” approach to the course. From the tee box to the bunkers, everything at Cannon Ridge Golf Club is now even sweeter.
Just one hour south of downtown Houston, The Wilderness Golf Course in Lake Jackson has bounced back from heavy rains that closed the course down for three weeks in June. Since then, renovations—including a complete re-do of the bunkers—have gotten this track back in immaculate condition and ready to test your skills.
Any trip to the Hawaiian islands should include a round or two at Maui Nui Golf Club in Kihei. The clubhouse has been completely renovated with several upgrades, and six new ladies tee boxes offer expanded options for playing through the beautiful layout. Add in other features including two new teaching academies and you have another island gem to enjoy.
Mulligans are nothing new for courses across the pond, too, as Shrigley Hall Hotel, Golf & Country Club can tell you. Their new par 3 18th hole—complete with over-water shot to finish your round—closes out the course against a stunning backdrop of the Manchester skyline. The newly renovated clubhouse is just one more reason to give this course another try.
