I played the South on Saturday 12 March 2011, but did view much of the North course renovations. They are targeting early May for the opening, and although most of it is already completed, the grasses are being allowed to settle in. I did see a few walkers out on the North carrying a bag so some residents are having a go at it. The course has been lengthened, some bunkers added, some removed. All bunkers have been refilled with white sand, which contrasts brilliantly with the grass. The greens have been redone to bent grass with minor reshaping. Just visually it looks very lush, and I believe will be ready on time.
As Troon Golf is now managing, greens fees include range balls. There is a huge practice putting green in front of a very impressive clubhouse with a superb grill. The practice facility has 2 chipping greens, with the range being grass and mats.
