WESTPORT, CT – After winning the public construction bid, Turco Golf Inc. is currently mobilizing to begin renovations at Longshore Golf Course next week. The project will focus on improving Longshore's many bunkers and sand traps. Sixteen existing sand bunkers will be removed, while seventy-one sand bunkers will either be built or restored. Additional work will include building new berms and mounding, as well as new fairway and chipping areas generated from existing turf, primarily on the course's par three holes.

Drainage is a top concern for the project. Nearly half of the newly built or restored bunkers will be lined with fabric liners, while the other green-side bunkers will utilize the Better Billy Bunker polymer spray method. Irrigation is also within the scope of work. New irrigation heads will be added to the golf course's existing system. Others will be shifted when deemed necessary to make room for the sand bunkers and fairway turf adjustments.

The project will commence next week. Construction is expected to be finished by May 2018.
