The host course, City Park Golf Course, just finished undergoing a full renovation. The completion of the 135-acre City Park Golf Course revitalizes the 18-hole course and its facilities while integrating a new stormwater management system to reduce flood risks in neighborhoods north of the course. The redesign of the golf course in the heart of the city utilizes 20 acres for a stormwater detention area and water quality channel that serve to make play at the course more interesting and varied, while retaining the character, charm and aspects of the original design.
