Preparing for big roll sod installation

Burlington, Illinois  Built as a private, rural retreat just west of Chicago, this layout began as a sporty 3-hole routing around a summer residence.  Complete with a par 3, par 4 and par 5, the greens on each hole were modeled after the owner’s favorites at his home course, the Merit Club, a Lohmann Companies original. Most recently, Golf Creations provided additional shaping and feature construction for a fourth hole that plays from several different teeing areas to an island green as both a par 3 and par 4, allowing the course to be routed as a 9 or 18-hole layout.
