FIRST LOOK: Kirkbrae’s New 17th Green
It took less than a month, but work has been completed on Kirkbrae’s new 17th green complex.
The hole was redesigned by golf course architect Mark Mungeam.
The hole will remain closed for the rest of the year, but will be ready to go once the 2023 golf season gets underway.
As GolfNewsRI previously detailed, the hole revamp consisted of removing the bunkers that were on the left side of the green (looking from the tee) and adding two bunkers to the right side.
The green itself is flattened out, allowing for more pin placements and shot making opportunities.
There is also a false front on the right side over the bunkers that slopes down into the rough allowing for interesting chip shots – or maybe even putts.
