The Saints Golf Course has been partially closed since May 1st of this year to carry out essential drainage work. XGD Systems, LLC, a construction company, has been working on the drainage project and is now in the final stages of the work. Currently, they’re working on holes 11 and 18 to complete the project. This includes installing needed drainage systems and creating a new swale along holes 11 and 17 to support water flow into our main irrigation lake during heavy rain. Once completed, the back nine holes will then be re-opened for play. The course is targeted to fully reopen in early December 2023, subject to weather impacts and unforeseen supply chain issues.

The drainage project at the golf course was made possible through the award of $1.299 million in funding from the State Water-Quality Assistance Grant (SWAG) and capital improvement funds.

The driving range has been closed since June 1, 2023, to make several major enhancements to the range and its hitting surface area. The re-grading, re-contouring, and re-sodding of the entire range landing area was completed several weeks ago. Since the range sod has had enough time to grow and become stable, the hitting surface of the range was leveled and expanded. Additionally, a new drainage system was installed in the hitting area to improve drainage during rain. Lastly, the final stages of a new safety net are being completed on the left side of the range hitting area to protect the starter hut and the tee boxes on hole number 1.

The driving range is expected to re-open in early November 2023, subject to unforeseen weather or project issues.

As we soon re-open the driving range and the golf course for play, we ask for everyone’s patience as we continue to finalize and repair certain areas disrupted due to the construction project. We anticipate a resolution to these areas very soon.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure of the golf course and driving range. Both facilities have been improved and will reopen soon. For updates on the project’s progress and status, please contact me via email or phone.

Our mission is to consistently ensure that our golfers and the community enjoy their time at The Saints. When choosing a golf course, we recognize that you have many options, and we thank you very much for choosing The Saints.
