The City is moving forward with a project that will bring a brand-new state of the art golf course to the area. One of the major design aspects of the new course is that only 150 thousand cubic feet of earth was actually moved, a relatively small amount in comparison to other courses. So golfers can really expect to see a course that uses its natural terrain to create challenges. From the get go many Laredoans were questioning if a golf course of this magnitude could be profitable, especially given the distance the facility is from the city limits. This morning, that was just one of the questions for investors and those who will manage the course. Rounds will cost $40 on the weekend and between $30 and $35 during the week Another big concern is the environmental impact a course of that size could have on an area, given it takes a lot of turf and water to keep in going. That's one of the first things the investors talked about before proceeding forward. The golf course will use the latest technology to ensure drastic measures don't have to be taken to save the greenery. Forsight Golf says from both a looks and cost basis it's important to keep a healthy course. The course is expected to be complete sometime in November.
