June 14 Ribbon Cutting Planned at Springbrook Golf Course
Tuesday, June 13, 2023
The community is invited to celebrate the completion of the course renovation at Springbrook Golf Course with a ribbon-cutting event at the course from 4:30-5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 14. Co-hosted by the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Naperville Park District, the event will include remarks from dignitaries and guests, photo opportunities, refreshments and a putting contest.
The renovation project, which came in under $3.5 million, began in August 2022 and included a complete rebuild of all tees and bunkers, reconstruction of two ponds and two bridges, new collection areas and mounding at green surrounds, and additional drainage improvements. Construction was completed in the winter of 2022-23. During the spring of 2023, the course has remained closed, except for the driving range and practice area, to allow the new turf to grow in.
"We are excited to showcase the renovations and welcome golfers back to the course this summer," said Director of Golf Kevin Carlson. "We continue to monitor the turf growth and plan to open gradually where the turf is ready for play, while allowing other areas sufficient time to grow in."
Springbrook plans to start welcoming back golfers on a limited basis beginning Thursday, June 15.
