The Club at New Seabury has completed renovations of its renowned Ocean Course and restored the 7,131-yard track to its original luster with aesthetic enhancements, design variety, new drainage and full bunker renovation for golfers of all levels to enjoy.
“We have improved the ambiance, playability and maintainability of the Ocean Course with this renovation, the final steps of our multi-year, multi-million dollar plan, all in an effort to enhance our Club offerings,” said The Club at New Seabury President Chris Card. “We’re thrilled to bring this storied course back to a level it deserves.”
The Ocean Course renovation, which spanned eight months, completes the Club’s 36-hole renovation which included New Seabury’s Dunes Course in 2019. Architect Bruce Hepner of Hepner Golf Design, in collaboration with Agriscapes Golf Course Construction and Scott Nickerson, New Seabury’s Director of Agronomy and Project Manager, developed a plan for both courses.
With the Ocean Course, enhancements were made to the front nine setting which offers views of the Atlantic Ocean as well as redesigned rebuilt and repositioned bunkers; expanded fairways, re-contoured multiple greens and the relocation of cart paths on designated holes.
Hepner who has renovated some of the world’s most renowned and top-ranked golf courses, said: “The renovation of the Ocean Course takes advantage of the ocean, pure and simple. Our goal was to make the golf better and interesting by changing grass lines and angles so people can subtly enjoy their round and surroundings. We infused classic architecture into the site to make it feel old, a classic style, where the golf course lays right on the land.”
Heppner’s renovation also included a re-grading of the first and ninth holes to enhance the ocean views from the entire first hole. He also approached the landscape and plantings so visually the course and the ocean could come together.
According to Scott Nickerson, Director of Agronomy and Project Manager, “Several approaches were also reshaped to give golfers an option and avenue to access the greens without forced carries, allowing the higher handicap player with lower shot trajectory a chance to get rewarded for their shot. And with the same concept in mind, many fairways were expanded.”
Added Jim Clay, Director of Golf at the Club at New Seabury: “The work completed on our property has enhanced each course while maintaining the unique characteristics each course in known for. The modifications made look like they’ve been here for years, they look natural and blend well with the course and its surroundings.”
