Palo Alto Golf Course Reconfiguration Project

Lead Department: Public Works

Project Manager: Joe Teresi
 

Project began July 1, 2016

The project will result in the following:
1. Provide The Joint Power Authorities San Fransquito Creek Levee Project with the 7.4 acres needed inside Palo Alto Golf Course for their project. This project will decrease the chances of flooding to Palo Alto, East Palo Alto, and Menlo Park residents and businesses.
2. Provides the City with the opportunity to reconfigure all 18 holes of the golf course while retaining a regulation golf course with a par 71 that will have less managed turf and more native grasses.
3. The new golf course will use 35% less water, implement native and salt tolerant vegetation, increase wildlife habitat, replace a deteriorating irrigation system, and add 10.5 acres of more recreation space to the City of Palo Alto.
4. Improved customer experience and playing conditions – drainage, turf, and irrigation. Improved views of the Bay.
5. The new design will integrate the golf course with the Baylands theme.
6. New practice greens, expanded driving range, and youth golf area.
7. Replace all bunkers with new bunkers.
8. All new signage and furniture.
