golf craneAuto dealer O.C. Welch has recently finished rebuilding the back nine holes of the original 18-hole layout of the city-owned Bacon Park Golf Course. Now the grass just needs to grow ahead of a planned October reopening, Welch said. The $1.4 million restoration comes after Welch made a similar investment to restore the first nine holes to their original design in the wake of being awarded the city contract to manage and renovate the course in December 2013. After opening the first nine holes in the fall of 2014 after a four-month restoration that cost about $150,000 per hole, Welch said he plans to open the back nine on Oct. 10. The opening will mark the completion of the restoration of the course to the original Donald Ross layout drawn in the 1920s.
