Renovation project

Major reconstruction work is expected to start during 2008 to transform and update the Mena House layout, an institution more than a golf course. The make-over, co-led by top golf architect Robert Trent Jones Jr, will take 12-14 months and will involve reshaping the course, removing some trees and extending two par-3 holes to par-4s, to take it to a par 70 from its present par 68. The new-look course will also feature three lakes,

floodlighting, mounding, a new covering of Paspalum grass and automated irrigation. A new driving range and pool for hotel guests’ use are part of the redevelopment project, too.
