Silver Rock Golf Resort will close the back nine for an APDC summer renovation lead by Senior Architect Brandon Johnson.
The renovation will include adding a new hole which will become the par three eleventh. Brandon Johnson said, “This takes advantage of an existing lake and the surrounding mountain views. The hole will be carved out of the desert landscape, and causes the renumbering of many of the other holes on the back nine.”
The existing thirteenth hole will become the new twelfth hole, and has been converted into a reachable par five.
The new fourteenth hole is also being converted into a par five, with the green shifted back and to the right, and a reconfigured second landing area.
What was formerly the par five twelfth hole is being converted into the new par five seventeenth hole, featuring a new green location.
The new eighteenth will be what was formerly the eleventh hole, and is being converted into a short par four, tempting players to go for it on the home hole.
The back nine is set to reopen for play in November 2017.
SilverRock is a former home course of the PGA Tour’s Bob Hope Classic from 2008-2011.
