SHORT GAME AREA
show the some of the progression and development of the short game
area. Rochester Metal Products provided roughly $17,000 to fund the
project in memory of Ron Meyers. Lyle Lingenfelter planned the design,
Glenn Johnson was responsible for the dirt work, and the Round Barn
Maintenance Staff was the labor behind bringing the project to completion.
Although already in use, the area will continue to grow in and improve
over the next several seasons.
The Ron Meyers Short Game Area
provides golfers with the ability to practice shots from less than
70 yards from varied lies, varied turf conditions, shallow bunkers
or a steep faced bunker. It also offers several targets,
several different landing features, and even allows the golfer
to hit slightly uphill or slightly downhill. The target green
is mowed at fringe height for the convenience of the golfer so they
do not need to be concerned with fixing ball marks.
