Turf Solutions Group Selected to Build Weibring Wolfard Designed Golf Course
PEORIA, Ill. (June 1, 2009) -- Turf Solutions Group is proud to announce it has been selected for construction and complete project management for a new golf course designed by D.A. Weibring being built in Metamora, Ill.
Metamora Fields Golf Club -- which will be privately owned but open to the public -- is scheduled to open in 2010. The golf course was designed by Weibring Wolfard Golf Design of Dallas. Metamora Fields is currently one of four golf courses in Illinois under construction, and TSG is building two of them.
"We will manage all construction activity for the entire 240-acre project," said Jason Payne of TSG.
In addition to building the golf course, TSG has developed the 102-lot subdivision that is the integral part of the overall golf community. TSG also is assisting with the design and integration of a 20,000-square-foot clubhouse, which will be able to host functions serving as many as 400 guests.
The championship golf course will play 7,100 yards from the back tees. The course will also feature a 25-station practice range and short-game area. Greens fees are projected to be in the lower $40s during the week and low $50s on the weekend.
Before construction of the course could begin this spring, TSG handled the annexation process of incorporating the site into the Village of Metamora. All zoning, permitting, engineering and financial modeling was part of the services provided by the company. TSG also is assisting with some marketing functions for the golf course and golf community.
"We're new to this," explained Vicki Brinkman, whose family is behind the project with an estimated budget of over $10 million. "We had no idea about everything that went into this. We'd be lost without Turf Solutions and everything they've done."
