Golf Course Update
Pine Canyon’s championship golf course remains a cherished amenity among residents of all experience, from seasoned pros to beginners. With 19 unique holes, each embraced by a sea of towering Ponderosa pines, the course unfolds in a wonderfully natural setting of challenging obstacles, rolling fairways, and scenic turns.
Designed by Jay Morrish, the course features frequent elevation changes with numerous ponds and trout-stocked lakes strategically placed to challenge players and maximize the panoramic beauty that surrounds. Hole 14 is especially spectacular, with a tree in the middle of the fairway that’s home to a majestic osprey nest.
Residents and course members may have noticed some new developments on the greens this summer. The Pine Canyon Agronomy team, along with golf course builders Heritage Links, have been busy renovating the course’s bunkers to elevate the player experience.
More than 85,000 square feet of freshly edged and reshaped bunkers will be filled with 75 percent “California Augusta White” and 25 percent “Arizona Gold” blended sand, providing not only a stunning color that pops against the vibrant green turf and tall pines, but also improving the playability and infiltration rate. The bunkers also will be lined with a hybrid specification of Capillary Concrete on all sloped faces for added stability and extended erosion prevention of sand.
The agronomy team has taken the opportunity to top dress all golf holes, both in fairways and in roughs, with 2,000 tons of old bunker sand to enhance the smoothness and firmness of the fairways while improving the drainage system in lower areas across the course. The team is currently working on the course’s last details and will focus on final cleanup throughout the remainder of the season.
Pine Canyon’s championship golf course provides residents and members with a variety of other luxury amenities, including state-of-the-art practice facilities, a fully appointed golf shop, Pine Canyon Men’s Grill and men and women’s locker rooms complete with a rejuvenating steam room, luxurious whirlpool hot tub, and private patios.
