By Design – Issue 56, Winter 2021

SKETCHBOOK Tim Liddy, ASGCA, has been overseeing a renovation at Harrison Lake Country Club in Columbus, Indiana. “The project is a remodel with a new routing,” said Liddy. “The eighth (Liddy’s sketch, pictured) was an important hinge point for the rerouting. This is a short par three of 165 yards, playing over a deep swale. The green site was lowered approximately eight feet, benched into an existing hill. It has similar design qualities of a ‘visible’ Dell hole.” Work at Harrison Lake has also focused on bunkers. “The course is located in a rural area, and I felt that natural looking bunkers combined with updated bunker infrastructure would improve the layout,” said Liddy. “Our work has aimed to add strategy and artistry along with addressing safety issues. One other hole where strategy has been improved is at the third which now has a risk-reward element to it. We have increased the challenge for bigger hitters around the landing areas, while allowing plenty of width for the shorter hitters.” Grassing is now complete at the renovated Harrison Lake course, which is scheduled to reopen in July 2022.• Harrison Lake Country Club By Design inspects a page from the sketchbook of Tim Liddy, ASGCA. 30
