Panorama West Course Improvements Underway
Some first steps towards substantial improvements for the Panorama West Golf Course have been taken, using funds received from the James and Joyce McLuen estate. Bid specifications for a new irrigation system were distributed to five contractors last week, with a deadline of February 1. Once bids are received and a contractor chosen, it's anticipated installation work will begin in early spring. Depending on weather conditions, construction is expected to take about two months. The work will be done so just one hole be closed at a time.
New tee signs are being created that will feature yardages from all tee boxes, plus color graphics of hole layouts and the Panorama West logo. New ball washers, trash receptacles, yardage markers and some additional directional signs also have been ordered. These new amenities will arrive in late spring and be installed as time and conditions permit. Also in the spring, new landscaping on all four sides of the clubhouse will be done. Plans for additional sections of concrete cart paths will be finalized once the irrigation cost is established. Next fall, tees and fairways will be aerified, seeded and fertilized to improve turf conditions. Additional funds will be used in the fall of 2019 and 2020 to provide continued improved of turf conditions on tees and greens.
