Practice Area and Driving Range Renovation at Naperbrook Golf Course to Begin in Early August
Naperville Park District will be renovating the driving range and practice green at Naperbrook Golf Course to improve and expand these areas. The project is expected to begin in early August and to continue for 4-6 weeks, depending on the weather. The driving range will open in early-to-mid-September after construction is complete, using the all-weather mats. The turf range tee and practice green will not open until late spring 2022.
The golf course at Naperbrook will remain open during construction, with some adjustments in traffic patterns around the back of the clubhouse to accommodate large equipment.
The scope of the project will include removal of the current range tee to make way to the construction of a new 27,000 square foot tee. The tee will be slightly raised from the previous location to provide better sightlines, and will be seeded with HGT bluegrass to provide an excellent hitting surface and wear tolerance. Additionally, the two small practice greens will be removed and a new 12,000 square foot green will be constructed, adding needed space for putting and chipping. Lastly, a practice bunker will be constructed next to the range tee to provide short game and full swing options for practicing from the sand. A new shed for the range ball dispenser will be added behind the clubhouse.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during construction and grow in of the range tee and practice green.
