Nicklaus course up for upgrade

Nicklaus course

Propped up by the encouraging words from tour professionals in relation to how beautiful the Nicklaus course played in the just-concluded Forest Hills Classic, Forest Hills Golf and Country will now continue the improvements in the par-71 layout.

Before the ICTSI tournament, the club finished renovation of six greens, two fairways and 80 percent of the tee boxes, according to Club Chairman Bob Sobrepeña, with the next three greens up for construction in the next few months.

“The pros were impressed with what we have done on Hole Nos. 1, 3, 9, 11, 14 and 18. The Forest Hills Classic was our gauge on how these will hold out with the best players in the country and I’m glad with the positive comments from them. We’ll be doing continuous works on the greens, fairways and tees as we resume our course and facilities programs for the year,” Sobrepeña said after the awarding ceremony.

“Up for greens rehabilitation are Hole Nos. 2, 10 and 16, as we want to further elevate the quality of the Nicklaus experience, not only for the pros but, more important, our members and guests. These are all to make Forest Hills’ playability pleasant in its already challenging design.”
