Landscapes Unlimited showcased its expertise in developing and constructing Sutton Bay Golf Club, a premier private golf club in central South Dakota. The project included creating an 18-hole championship golf course, a driving range, 60 lodging units, a clubhouse, cart storage facility, irrigation system, cart paths, pump station, maintenance buildings, infrastructure, and the meticulous grow-in process.
The development and construction of Sutton Bay Golf Club presented several notable highlights. The high-end golf course was crafted among rolling hills, rugged dunes, and picturesque views of Lake Oahe. With an inland links design spanning approximately 7,245 yards, the par 72 course offered a challenging yet captivating experience for members and guests. Landscapes Unlimited’s attention to detail and strategic approach ensured the seamless integration of the course within the expansive property.
Landscapes Unlimited built a second maintenance building closer to the course to enhance the facility’s functionality, serving dual purposes as a maintenance facility and pump house. This strategic decision optimized maintenance operations and streamlined resource management.
A remarkable aspect of Landscapes Unlimited’s construction approach was the thoughtful preservation and integration of the natural landscape. Native grass from areas designated for fairway clearance was carefully repurposed to surround the bunkers, seamlessly blending them with the surrounding environment. This attention to detail created a cohesive and harmonious aesthetic throughout the course.
Beyond the construction phase, Landscapes Golf Management was crucial to the club’s operational success. They developed a comprehensive operations plan for Sutton Bay Golf Club, including the hiring and development of the club’s management team. Their expertise in membership documents and operational guidelines ensured the smooth functioning of the club.
Additionally, Landscapes spearheaded the development and implementation of sales programs, attracting new members to the club and contributing to its ongoing success.
The Sutton Bay project is a testament to Landscapes Unlimited’s prowess in golf course construction. Through exceptional attention to design, integration of natural landscapes, and comprehensive operational planning, Landscapes Unlimited has established a premier destination that embodies the perfect harmony between sport, nature, and impeccable hospitality.
