The Links at Sagewood, Phoenix/Gary Brawley, ASGCA
A new putting course was commissioned as part of the Phase II expansion of the Sagewood, Senior Living Community in Phoenix, converting 50,000 square feet of open space into a world-class amenity for the 600 residents. The Owner’s directive was to build the highest quality, natural playing surface putting course that would be a fun and unique challenge for the residents.
Creating a large putting surface rather than 18 individual holes lends itself to more playing options in the daily set-up. The result is an 18-hole layout that can also be played in reverse. In addition, golfers have a 9-hole routing and a superintendent’s choice routing so that over a four-week period the golf course will play different each week. Residents are also encouraged to explore the putting green and have fun with whatever way they choose to play the course that day.
