In a time when the golf industry is trying more than ever to increase revenue and grow the game, courses are getting creative—and it needs more ideas like this.
Wedgewood Golf and Country Club in Powell, Ohio, has partnered with Hurdzan Golf to create a short game center. The proposed facility is a two-green design featuring an apron of fairway at both ends that will allow the replication of every kind of aerial and ground game approach strategy found on the course.
Dr. Christopher M. Hurdzan says, “The Membership of this all-American establishment has everything they could ever want in a club, except a facility designed specifically to allow practice of all aspects of their short game. Our friend and Head PGA Teaching pro Jimmy Logue II is particularly enthusiastic, as he will now have the resources to more intimately and comprehensively teach this element so critical to a complete golf game.”
The facility will be in an underdeveloped valley close to the second green and the entrance of Wedgewood. According to Dr. Hurdzan, the conspicuous location will give a very visual first impression communicating, “welcome to Wedgewood.”
