Treyburn Country Club Celebrates Newly Designed Golf Course
(Durham, NC) -- Treyburn Country Club is having a grand re-opening this weekend to celebrate its newly refurbished Tom Fazio-designed golf course and expanded practice facility.
The physical work on the Treyburn golf course began in June 2011 and the club will waste no time showing off its freshly enhanced layout. Treyburn plays host to the prestigious North Carolina High School Invitational April 2 as well as the 52nd North Carolina Amateur Championship June 14-17.
The extensive renovation done on the golf course allowed McConnell Golf to complete several different projects that not only enhance the layout itself, but also restore Treyburn's reputation as one of the best golf courses in North Carolina. With these numerous improvements, McConnell Golf members and their guests will enjoy their golfing experience for years to come.
In addition to the new putting surfaces, bunkers, and irrigation and drainage upgrades, Treyburn's two-decade-old practice facility also received a face-lift. The top two tiers of the driving range hitting areas have been leveled and expanded by 40 percent, and new flagpoles have been installed to provide a cleaner look for the six target greens. The putting green has been completely redesigned with an additional 1,000 square feet of putting surface.
Finally, expanded chipping and pitching areas have been designed to assist all players with their short game. Necessary modifications that will allow McConnell Golf members and guests a better opportunity to elevate their golf game
"All the renovation work we do allows continuity of excellence between generations of membership," said McConnell Golf Director of Golf Operations Brian Kittler. "Our members are accustomed to outstanding golf clubs and they want the next generation to inherit an equally outstanding facility. John McConnell takes really good properties, puts in a lot of money and makes them great. He gets them to a whole new level."
Golf Digest voted Treyburn "Best New Course" when it opened in the late 1980s. Raleigh's John McConnell and his company, McConnell Golf, purchased Treyburn in December 2006. Treyburn is one of eight courses owned by McConnell Golf. Others in the Triangle include Raleigh Country Club and TPC at Wakefield Plantation in Raleigh.
