Rick Mattox here, Golf Director and General Manager, writing to thank all of you who wrote on the blog and visited our website (www.hamptonclub.com) to see our progress. We are heading toward the finish line with an early October opening. Through the vision of our architect Billy Fuller and the quality building work provided by Medalist Golf, a truly great golf experience is coming your way. The new green and bunker complexes are going to be a surprise for many of you who have played with us in the past. With the addition of fairway bunkers for aiming and increased grassed areas on both left and right to enhance the look and playability, a golfers dream awaits you.
Something new I want to share with you is that we have added a new, outstanding practice area. It includes a 6500+ square foot mini-verde putting green, practice bunker, 3000 square foot mini-verde chipping green, plus a practice swale and mounds for chipping from uneven lies. Along the right side of the range we have added target greens at 50, 70 and 90 yards to practice short wedge shots. On the left side, a fairway bunker is added to practice those pesky fairway bunker shots that we all hate. Range target greens are in place for 120, 150 and 220 yards with bunkers in front, planted with putting green grass for true game-like conditions.
With the changes we have made, once you come to The King and Prince our golf course will be another of the many reasons you will never want to leave!
