Twenty-nine bunkers, or sand traps, could be renovated at Centennial Golf Course for $128,000 under a resolution to be considered by the Oak Ridge City Council tonight.
The Golf Course Fund would be used to pay for the repairs at the city-owned golf course. The work would be done by First Place Finish Inc. of Oak Ridge, with help from Signet Golf Associates.
The bunkers receive daily maintenance, but no significant renovations have taken place since the golf course opened in 1997, a city memo said.
“The current bunkers are high maintenance and require substantial hand work at the start of each day,” said the memo, written by Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Director Josh Collins. “Several have poor or inadequate drainage, thus creating ponding problems after heavy rains.”
The new bunkers will improve access and make the course, managed by Billy Casper Golf, more compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Collins said.
