Bunker Restoration Commences at Clinton Country Club

Clinton Country Club in Clinton, CT

CLINTON, CT – One of the oldest golf clubs in the nation is getting a face lift. Turco Golf recently began renovations at Clinton County Club located in Clinton, CT. Clinton Country Club was established in 1895 and was designed by golf architect Jeffery Cornish. The private 18-hole golf course has been renovated several times in its 122-year history, most recently a large renovation project in 2006 and a much smaller upgrade in 2011. Turco Golf Inc. has been contracted to complete their current 9-hole bunker restoration project.

The scope of work for Clinton Country Club's latest renovations include the restoration of green-side and fairway bunkers on holes 10 through 18. The bunker surrounds will be stripped of sod and all bunker sand will be removed and excavated. Rough and finish shaping of each bunker will be required and new drainage pipes and fittings will be installed. Each bunker will have liner material installed with new bunker sand installed. Sodding of the bunker surrounds will repair the areas adversely affected by construction. In all there are 36 green-side and fairway bunkers scheduled for completion.

In addition to the bunker work, the tee box at hole 13 is also scheduled to be re-done. Many of the same construction trades will be utilized to complete the tee renovation including: earthwork, shaping, drainage, irrigation, topsoil management, seedbed preparation and feature sodding.

The golf course renovations at Clinton Country Club are currently under way. The project's construction schedule anticipates completion of the project before the end of the fall season. For additional details about Clinton Country Club, please visit their website at: http://www.clintoncc.org.
