Private club renovates Berks golf course

General manager Gerry Heller said the project affected two holes at LedgeRock initially, the downhill par-3 10th hole and the uphill, par-4 17th hole. But plans call for adjusting other holes, as well.

The 10th hole should open by late May, with work on the 17th hole wrapping up after that.

Heller estimated the renovations to cost about $500,000.

Rees Jones, a golf course architecture firm based in Montclair, New Jersey, designed the course when it opened and designed the renovations.

Jones will equip the 10th hole with a variety of new tee locations, allowing people to play the hole from as many as six new angles and elevations. Jones will soften the 17th hole, the club’s most difficult.

“They suggested we make a few changes so the two holes are more equitable,” Heller said.

Ledgerock Superintendent Alan Fitzgerald is overseeing the effort using in-house construction crews.

The club, which opened in 2006, also has a learning center that includes indoor practice bays, an indoor putting and chipping green and large, full-shot driving range.
