Sun City Texas, a Del Webb/Pulte property, recently began plans to enhance both its Legacy Hills and White Wing golf courses. Fry/Straka Global Golf Course Design has been commissioned by the Sun City Texas Community Association to lead the course enhancement and renovation project. Among other things, the anticipated project will focus on improving playability and pace of play, drainage, tolerance to increased cart and pedestrian traffic, tree removal, and other maintenance related issues.
We are thrilled to work with Fry/Straka on this project. Our courses offer first-class golfing for both resident members and the public. Our goal with this project is to ensure that the courses maintain the level of excellence and playability our residents expect for years to come, while offering a level of interest and challenge that continues to attract outside play. We look forward to Jason of Fry/Straka putting his touch on the courses and seeing them transform over the next year. – Ron Delaney, Director of Golf Operations at Sun City Texas
Fry/Straka is honored to be chosen to assist Sun City Texas with its golf course improvement project. We are looking forward to ensuring the residents of Sun City Texas and the surrounding region continue to have an exceptional golf experience on the White Wing and Legacy Hills golf courses for a long time to come. – Jason Straka, Principal, Fry/Straka Global Golf Course Design
Construction is anticipated to begin in 2016.
