Stevens Park Golf Course to reopen Oct. 10

And just in time for good weather. The $8 million updates at Stevens Park Golf Course are right on schedule, and a grand opening is planned for Oct. 10.

Arlington-based Colligan Golf Design reconfigured the course to provide better views of the Dallas Skyline and slow erosion at Coombs Creek.

“It is truly unique and exciting to be given the opportunity to enhance a golf course rich with tradition and history dating back to the early 1920’s when the course was first open,” Colligan stated in a media release.

The course will have new tee boxes, fairways and greens, plus 38 new sand bunkers.

The media release states: “This all new, par-70 track challenges golfers to be long from the tee and accurate to the green with a layout that now stretches 6,300 yards.”

The updates were paid using 2003 and 2006 bond money.

    I will continue to dog walk, run & bike Stevens Park as always.
    The biking trails/cart paths are more challenging now. Bike friendly OC.

    Are they going to replace the trees and shrubs this fall/winter that were planted during our drought and 100 degree extended stint and didnt make it? It looks as though some of those beds are too small and close to the sidewalks. The plants will take over the sidewalk once they’re fully grown. Who does the planning on these things? This is landscaping 101.

    Ah, yes,

    And they kicked walkers, joggers, bikers and DOGS from the best romp in the Cliff.
