The Hill, Blacksburg’s Municipal Golf Course, will undergo a renovation project beginning in July 2017 and ending Oct. 1.
These investments in our town’s park system will include re-grassing of the course, relocation of several cart paths, and the redesign of several features such as greens, tee boxes, and bunkers. These are the first major improvement to the course in over 50 years, improving playability and marketability of the community treasure.
There will be construction equipment on the golf course during the early part of the project from July through October. Removal of a limited number of diseased and damaged trees as well as some affecting the layout of the course will also be completed for safety and the health of the turf. The remaining time from the fall through spring will be the grow-in period and grooming for the new turf.
