The efforts, time, and financial resources of the Village of Glenview, the Glenview Park District, and architect Rick Jacobson have turned the Glenview Park Golf Club ‘inside out’. The golf course recently reopened after a complete renovation of the entire facility.
The eleven month project has achieved results that provide better drainage for the golf course, greater storm water detention on the course, improved storm water management for the surrounding neighborhoods, and an impressive remodeling of the clubhouse interior. According to GPGC Director of Golf Ron Cassidy, other key improvements include re-graded fairways, improved turf grass conditions, landscaping, featuring foliage that changes colors with the seasons, reseeded tee boxes and greens as well as renovated sand bunkers.
“We were fortunate to have the Glenview Park District Board give us the go-ahead to do a nice updated renovation of our clubhouse” said Cassidy. “We updated the fixtures, flooring, tables and chairs, and have built a new bar that will be complete with new big screen TV’s; the clubhouse now includes multiple locations to eat, drink, and socialize, both indoors and out. The pro shop has been redone along with the bathrooms and lockers.”
“47 years ago I first stepped on the Glenview Park Golf Club as a young man just learning how to play the game of golf” said golf course architect Rick Jacobson. “What an honor it has been for me to be a part of the project team that preserved and enhanced this historic golf facility. This picturesque parkland golf course is punctuated with golf holes that present golfers with alternative options on how to conquer each hole.”
