Westhaven Golf Club in Franklin, Tennessee, has completed the first phase of a greens renovation and enhancement project. Open since 2009, Westhaven’s 18-hole course was originally designed by Arthur Hills, Steve Forrest and Associates.

The renovation included the redesign of six new greens, a newly designed practice putting green, and a conversion of all putting surfaces to TifEagle Bermudagrass. Golf course architect and former Augusta National superintendent Billy Fuller oversaw the green complex redesign project. Phase II of the project is scheduled for next summer when five green complexes will be redesigned and renovated.

“I am very pleased with the results of our first phase,” said Westhaven general manager Mark Lammi, PGA Master Professional. “Billy Fuller’s new green complex designs will both excite the more skilled players and give the higher handicap golfers better playability. Southern Land’s commitment to a full conversion of putting surfaces to TifEagle Bermudagrass will give us one of the most complete golf experiences in the Southeast.”

Located just south of Nashville, Westhaven is located adjacent to the Westhaven master-planned community, developed by Southern Land Company. The core-golf design blends with the surrounding hills and ridgelines of western Williamson County.
