Tiger’s Golf Course Plan Gains Support

Chicago, United States: A proposed Tiger Woods golf course design has gathered momentum.
At a January meeting of the Jackson Park Advisory Council’s (JPAC) Golf Course Committee, the committee stated its ‘consensus that the new golf course could bring prestige, status and new economic benefits to the community’.
Based on new information from the conceptual golf course design proposal, the committee reconvened last week.
Following the meeting, JPAC Golf Course Committee Chairman Jerry Levy said: “Based on the community engagement efforts of the Chicago Park District and Chicago Parks Golf Alliance, it is the consensus of the committee to continue its support of the proposal to combine the Jackson Park and South Shore Golf Courses.
“The conceptual plans by Tiger Woods’ TGR Design propose features to attract recreational golfers; while also offering potential to bring marquee professional, junior and amateur events to Jackson Park.
“Committee members also cited noticeably increased activity among golfers of all ages at the courses during summer 2017. The committee’s support remains conditioned upon adherence to previously stated requirements: continued open access to the public; reduced fees for Chicago residents, including discounted pricing for seniors and free golf for juniors age 17 and younger; as well as following ecological standards in construction, maintenance and operations.
“The committee also calls upon the Chicago Park District and Chicago Parks Golf Alliance to continue collaboration with long-time golfers and non-golfing neighbourhood stakeholders as design proposals are refined.
“In conclusion, based upon current information, the committee reaffirms its consensus that the proposed golf course will bring prestige, status, and new economic benefits to the community and will be a major asset to Jackson Park.”
