New Improvements Made To Legacy Courses For 2004
BRAINERD, MN May 13, 2004 – Dutch Cragun, owner of the Legacy Courses at Cragun’s, announced the recent completion of 54 course changes and improvements designed to increase the overall playability of the courses for the 2004 golfing season.
“The Legacy’s 54 holes were successfully designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. to be a world class golfing venue.” Cragun said. “As the courses matured, we made these improvements to add enjoyment and fun to the golf experience for every level of player, from scratch to duffer.”
The improvements include changes on all three Legacy Courses: the Dutch 18 championship course, the Bobby’s 18 championship course and the Legacy Par 3 Reversible Course.
One of the most pleasing of the course changes is the addition of a fifth tee for each hole. Other significant changes include elevating tees and shortening some carries over wetlands, removing or altering 10 bunkers, removal of trees, brushing out rough areas and grassing-in roughs on fairways.
Cragun notes that these changes haven’t affected the Legacy’s designation as the world’s largest International Audubon Signature Sanctuary.
“The course upgrades make it even more enjoyable for the average golfer.” Cragun said. “The Legacy can now truly offer one of the most versatile golf experiences in the Midwest, combining top-notch challenge for the serious golfer with a welcoming environment for those who play less often.”
The courses still offer the same distinctive harmony of premier golf set in a natural environment of marshes, lakes and forests.
