Peter McCormick

Braemar will be reduced from 27 to 18 holes, with the extra elbow room for the new 18 allowing expanded wetland buffer areas, wider fairways, and larger greens and tee boxes. 

In order to keep maintenance costs in line, only 44 sand bunkers will be created, ground contours will include simple rolls and undulations to enable efficient mowing, and hand work will be minimized.

Construction started in October with opening slated for the summer of 2018.
