Palmetto Dunes

When the decision was made at Greenwood Development to improve the drainage on our classic Robert Trent Jones course, the priority was to find a designer who could improve the layout, while honoring the style. Through my friendship with Ricky Huey from the Robert Trent Jones trail in Alabama I came in contact with Roger. What started as a drainage project developed into a full scale redo of the old course. Roger and the Group were able to reshape the entire golf course within the existing corridors and accomplish what I thought would be next to impossible, a substantial upgrade of not only the design, but of the maintainability of the property while keeping with the Jones tradition. The group also handled the construction management for the project which proved to be invaluable to quality control and keeping the project on schedule. They were able to create a real team atmosphere, and in the end not only do I have satisfied owners and players, we had a lot of fun building this golf course.
