Tee time: Painted Woods golfers to putt 18 holes

By Cheryl McCormack

Golfers, you can finally stop dreaming about putting new greens along the Painted Woods Creek.

The golf course is celebrating the soft opening of its newly renovated 18-hole course tomorrow.

The celebration begins at 9 a.m. with sponsors and volunteers getting the first "sneak peek." The public is welcome shortly after 12:30 p.m.

Board President Trevor Leidy said, "This has been almost 15 years in the making."

In 2006, Al Carvell offered Painted Woods administrators a deal they couldn’t refuse – 130 acres of land, adjacent to the nine hole course, at a fair price.

The land was purchased and after about five years of seriously considering their options, a plan was drawn up in 2012.
