Major repairs to Shreveport city golf courses are coming along.
Renovations at Huntington Park Golf Course are almost finished.
The hold-up is waiting for the grass to grow.
The clubhouse has been totally gutted, and has a new entrance.
Work on the course is complete with a new irrigation system and new putting greens.
The course is set to re-open in April of 2014.
The $2.3 million project was approved during a bond issue in 2011.
"Can't wait to have this open to the public and for them to come out and see our improvements,” said Tim Wachtel, a planner for SPAR.
“The clubhouse is going to be almost all new but we're going to keep the tradition of the Huntington golf course. I think the public is going to be very pleased with the way the golf course turned out. We had a very good golf course architect on the project. All the greens are rebuilt, the tees are rebuilt. "
Querbes golf course is also a part of the 2011 bond issue. It's getting a brand new clubhouse worth $800,000.
The new clubhouse is expected to open in January. Wachtel said the old one will be demolished.
