Effingham Country Club

ECC - in house labor

Member volunteers install sand in the new bunkers

Effingham, Illinois  Working from an Asset Management Plan drawn up by sister firm, Lohmann Golf Designs, holes 9, 10, 11 and 15 were updated by Golf Creations at this 18-hole private club to widen corridors for playability and improve strategic layout. The improvements were completed with the help of a volunteer crew of members, who installed bunker sand to save money for the club. The high praise received for the improvements prompted the club to remodel their 2nd hole the following year, adding a new green complex and water feature, complete with boulder retaining wall, on this short par 3 to challenge golfers from several angles. The LC design-build team looks forward to many more projects at ECC in the years to come.
