Statesville, North Carolina
River Oaks is a semi-private golf course located in the picturesque foothills of North Carolina. Routed through rolling topography, the course has many memorable holes. In 2023 I assisted with a course renovation that included moving two greens and re-grassing all greens with Mach 1 bermudagrass. The first green was moved across the pond, closer to its original location and offers a stern test right out of the gate. The eighth green and surrounds were moved up on the hillside, out of the flood plain, creating an improved approach to a Redan-style green.
