06 Oct First Tee boost for new-look Osceola
The city of Pensacola in Florida has invested US$750,000 in a makeover of its Osceola municipal golf course, and the renovated course will reopen this week.
Architect Harrison Minchew of Signature Golf Design led the six month project, which included the construction of four new holes. Florida-based Lepanto Golf Construction was the contractor.
Three of the four new holes are par threes, so the reworked course will play to par 70 rather than its previous 72, though it remains approximately the same length, slightly more than 6,400 yards from the back tees.
