First Phase of Yarmouth’s Bayberry Hills Golf Course Renovations Complete

YARMOUTH –Yarmouth golf officials have completed the first of two phases of renovations on the Bayberry Hills Golf Course on time and under budget.

Work began last fall and finished in mid-April.

The budget for the entire project is $2 million.

Improvements include the reconstruction of bunkers and re-grassing of the green surrounds of holes 10 through 18 and the construction of four new tees on holes number 7, 11, 15 and 18.

The cost for those improvements was estimated at $1 million but officials ended up only spending $605,000.

The goal of phase 1 was to have the back nine of the course open for play by the spring.

“If we had to stop today, which we certainly don’t want to do, we’ve accomplished a great deal and a significant improvement on the golf course just with what we’ve managed to do to date,” said Director of Golf Operations Jim Armentrout.

The second phase of the project includes the reconstruction and expansion of the current golf path system.

Officials began some of that work already, spending $450,000 so far to construct 14,000 of the desired 23,000 feet of path.

“We plan to start work on the front nine in early October of this year and anticipate a similar opening date in the spring of 2018,” said Golf Enterprise Committee Chairman Kristen Seymour. “As promised, we are controlling costs at every level to ensure that the total cost does not exceed the available $2 million.”

They estimate that they will use $600,000 to fund the remaining improvements to front nine and another $300,000 to finish the golf cart path.

If the costs are what the officials estimate, the town will save about $45,000 from their $2 million budget.
