Restoring Devereux Emmet's Design at Bonnie Briar

October 7, 2011

LARCHMONT, NY- The improvements at Bonnie Briar Country Club continue.  In an effort to restore elements of the original Devereux Emmet design, Heatwole Golf Design is working with the club on the restoration of several greenside and approach bunkers.  The new design focuses on achieving increased visibility and playability as well as introducing an enhanced aesthetic quality to the overall golf holes.  Throughout the design and implementation process, careful consideration was given to work to reduce long term costs of maintaining the bunkers and the surrounding slopes.

Additional improvements include the expanding of one green and the design of an entirely new green.  The new green adds length to a short par 5 hole and creates a more challenging approach shot.  Throughout the design process, special attention was paid to the original Devereux Emmet greens throughout the golf course to ensure that the new green would flows seamlessly with the original design style.
