Norby Golf Course Design was selected by the golf and cemetery board to develop a Master Plan for the Lakeview Golf Course. Mr. Norby specializes exclusively in the design of golf course communities, golf courses and golf practice facilities. This includes new course design, long range master planning, renovation design and construction observation services. Your input will help us develop a Master Plan for golf course improvements with achievable strategies for the next 10 years. When complete, the Master Plan will be a valuable tool with information to guide the department and golf and cemetery board in meeting the expectations of the golf community.
Phase 1 of the Lakeview's Master Plan has been underway. First, we are working on tree removal and building the new "forward" tees with Phase 1 of the Master Plan for Lakeview's Renovation to the course.
The Second Phase of the Master Plan, which is diagrammed in the attachments, is slated to start in July of 2024. There will be no major/hole closures this year in 2023. The second phase has already been approved and funded. We will be moving forward with the second phase in August 2024 with a completion date set for June of 2025. It consists of relocating #11 green and abandoning hole #12, moving #13 (which will be the new #12) tees back a little bit to where #12 green was, building a new par 3 (hole #14), and shifting #15 tees to the west (keeping it a par 5 but taking some of the dog leg out of it).
