Gem Lake Hills has enlisted the help of Greenspan to create a 19-hole putting course for guests.

The course is made up of 18 challenging holes, with a final 19th hole that Greenspan says will test the mettle of even the most seasoned golf pro. In addition, there is a large practice putting green, alongside benches and shade structures for guest comfort.

Matt Greer, from Gem Lake Hills Public Golf Course, said: “We feel a putting course fits in very well with what we do here and achieves the goal of using our space in a way that benefits the customer as well as our business.

“The two nine-hole courses, along with the putting course, will continue our approach of bringing people together, making memories, and creating a fun and relaxed atmosphere for a wide range of ages and abilities.”

A Greenspan spokesperson added: “This is a big moment for Greenspan and indeed all golf clubs throughout the USA. Not only is this a flagship course and one we will be immensely proud of, but it is a sign of the times that golf clubs are becoming more family-friendly and a sign that many others may follow.”
