The second public meeting to discuss improvements to the Jefferson Park golf course is scheduled for next Thursday, December 15, at 7 p.m. at the Jefferson Park Golf Course Clubhouse, 4101 Beacon Ave. S. All interested community members are invited to this meeting to meet the design team and comment on the planned design.

The current proposed schematic design includes a two-story clubhouse with a banquet hall, café, pro shop, and teaching space; a double-deck driving range with improvements; a modified cart barn; modified cart paths; and parking modifications. Lead design firm for the project is Bassetti Architects, and other sub-consultants include The Berger Partnership and Nuzzo Course Design.

The budget for the renovation project is a total of $7,283,686, funded by the 2011 Multi Purpose Limited Tax General Obligation Debt, Ordinance #123442. The design process is scheduled to run until May 2012, and completion of the project is scheduled for April 2013.

  1. Oh. Not impressed.

    4.5 million to destroy the 1920 clubhouse, but they’ve cut the perimeter trail – the only thing left that was an actual community improvement.

    Maybe someone should start the landmark process for the old building. 🙂

    From PDF.
    “Comprehensive project map from the 2009 Golf Master Plan, current funding does not include improvements to: maintenance facilities, restrooms, nor the perimeter trail.”

    Any they plan to pave every cart trail on the course.

    and this was nice:
    Neighborhood Plan
    While the North Beacon Hill Neighborhood Plan contains several activities pertaining to golf, Parks and the City were not supportive for a variety of reasons.
    “The City does not support this activity as proposed and notes that it would require amendments to the adopted golf master plan referenced.”

  2. I’m not going to be able to make this meeting, but I hope that someone can post something about how it goes. I’m particularly interested in the percent for art projects.

  3. I’m bummed I missed this. Anybody make it? Any major changes to the apparent preferred alternative? I’m sure Parks will eventually post the plan, but they definitely take their time.
