Construction began this summer on Victoria Park Valley, a 27-hole executive-length golf course located about 4 kms. south of Victoria Park East, the the north-east corner of Maltby Rd. and Victoria Rd. South in Puslinch Township.
This project is a co-venture with Victoria Park East and West, and it will replace the West course, which is slated to close at the end of the 2011 golf season (the West course property will be developed into a residential site). So, if everything goes according to plan, Victoria Park Valley will open for business in Spring 2012.
The picture above is looking west towards Victoria Rd. Construction has been progressing very well since the late spring, and project manager David DeCorso has been expertly juggling this project, as well as the constant demands of the East course. Here’s an interesting picture of David, checking out a major vein of sand that was discovered on the property:
The golf course was designed by Scott Covell, and most of the property’s natural features were incorporated into the plan. Very little earth-moving had to be done. The landscape is excellently suited to a links-style layout.
At this point (August 24th) most of the “A9” holes are shaped and top-soiled, and are ready to be seeded. I’ll update with more pics as the projects continues. We’re very excited about this, and anticipate that it will be a great fit for area golfers who enjoy a shorter-length golf course.
