Coral Oaks Getting Makeover

While there’s no guarantee of landing a ‘hole in one’, golfers at Coral Oaks are up for a real bargain when it comes to playing the par 72 course. The Cape Coral golf course is currently in the midst of a $300,000 renovation project, and that means big savings for golfers, at least for the time being. The renovation includes mostly greens work with the tees and fairways added in, as well as more landscaping and trees. Workers are constructing a new practice range and installing new putting surfaces, as well as renovating the teeing grounds on several holes and doing some fairway work. As that happens, golfers are being moved to temporary greens. To acknowledge the disruption, those golfing before 3pm will receive a $20 rate during the renovation, with the price going down to just $15 after 3pm. That includes the cart. While most work is finished already, the greens should open later this fall. The municipal course boasts that more than 55,000 rounds of golf are played on it each year, with the lowest amount tallied last year. It’s expected that an improved playing surface will only help boost usage in the future. The 18-hole, Arthur Hills-designed course was originally constructed in the late 1980s within a 100-year old oak hammock, surrounded by a natural environment including numerous lakes and large greens. Challenging for those of all abilities, the municipal course is home to one of the area’s largest practice facilities. As well, the location includes an on-site pro shop and a full restaurant and bar, popular for golfers to wind down at after playing a round. Additionally, Coral Oaks staffs PGA professionals for private lessons, clinics and golf school. With year-round golfing, the recent renovation project is expected to entice even more golfers to the course in the Cape Coral region of Florida.
