Orange Tree Golf Course Plans New Practice Facility
Great news from Shelby Futch, Scottsdale Golf Group CEO: Orange Tree Golf Club practice facilities will receive a complete makeover this summer by Ken Kavanaugh Golf Course Design.
Ken Kavanaugh is a local design hero in these parts and the master golf course architect has worked with SGG for over 15 years.
We have all enjoyed his enhancements to Red Mountain Ranch Country Club and Painted Mountain Golf Club, both courses owned by Scottsdale Golf Group.
This summer, the Orange Tree practice range will be lengthened and the tee area enlarged. When finished in the Fall of 2014, the facility will grow to more than twice its current size and be one of the largest “all-turf” practice facilities in Arizona.
Three large putting greens and a chipping green are included in the redesign to provide expanded areas for the short game work we all need.
Shelby Futch, founder & CEO of Scottsdale Golf Group owns six Phoenix metro-area golf courses and a private club in the Texas Hill Country, River Crossing Club.
As founder of the John Jacobs Golf Schools and Academies with 12 locations across the USA and two Canadian locations underway, he has earned an international reputation as an industry leader whose career incorporates every phase of the golf business. Shelby was inducted in the Arizona Golf Hall of Fame last year in an awards ceremony in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Orange Tree Golf Club has always been a convenient and comfortable all-turf practice facility. Now it’s going to be roomy as well.
Orange Tree’s traditional tree-lined golf course is a great play this time of year. Read the Arizona Golf Authority Orange Tree Golf Course Review, make a tee time and go enjoy the Johnny Bulla design.
