Big Changes Happening at the St. Marys Golf & Country Club

Sand Trap RenovationsThe St. Marys Golf & Country Club is currently working with Rob Cuncic on renovating the green-side sand traps at the St. Marys Golf & Country Club. Cuncic and his crew recently renovated the sand traps at Tarandowah Golfers Club and Redtail Golf Club, two premier golf courses, both just outside of London, Ontario. 

"It was just something we needed to do," says Matt Staffen, General Manager of the St. Marys Golf & Country Club, when asked about the bunker renovations happening NOW at the Club. "In our 2015 Customer Survey, the number one request from our golf members and game pack players was improvements to our bunkers and therefore we are delivering on that request," he added.

Bunker Improvements"We are focused on continuous improvement to our golf facilities and re-investment back into the golf course," says Staffen. "We are so lucky to have this stunning golf course property and we want to ensure that we continue to provide this community asset for years to come to the people of St. Marys, Stratford, London and areas."

Sandy Fifield, Head Superintendent at the golf club says the new bunkers will provide "drastic" improvements to the make-up of the bunkers, with a focus on better drainage and new (higher-quality) sand, while also making the sand traps larger. Golfers have already noticed a major difference, providing a new perspective as they approach the green and the first bunkers renovated on holes 4, 5, 6 and 7.

Stratford Golf CourseThe three-week sand trap renovation is happening during golf now and expected to be completed by the end of next week (July 24th). This is part of a three-year sand trap renovation plan where the course plans to invest improvements into all 40 + bunkers. Meanwhile, the green side sand traps on holes 4, 5, 6 and 7 have already been completed and filled with the new high quality sand.
