Irving Golf Club, formerly Twin Wells Golf Course, is closed for renovations. Enhancements will include a new irrigation system, tee boxes, putting greens and clubhouse facilities.
When the course reopens, residents can expect a newly organized course, a more efficient drainage system and a number of other upgrades.
Crews closed the course in October 2016 to begin renovations. Before the aesthetic work could begin, crews first focused on the course’s 30-year-old infrastructure. A new irrigation system was needed. The new system features high-density polyurethane pipe, which adapts better to shifting soil.
Once the work below the soil was done, crews began reorganizing the layout and flow of the course. The grounds where the former back nine were, will now sit as the front nine. The newly designed back nine also were restructured to give players a more challenging game.
The renovation project also includes rebuilt greens and tee boxes. Because of the reorganization of the course, new grass will be planted on the tee boxes, fairways and greens. The driving range and practice putting green also were realigned.
Completion is expected mid-2019. Questions concerning the golf course project should be directed to the Irving Parks and Recreation Department at (972) 721-2501.
