When:  Tuesday, May 12, 2009, at 10:00 a.m
Where:  WPB Golf Course, 7001 Parker Avenue, WPB

 

(05/11/09)  Mayor Lois J. Frankel and former PGA Tour player Mark McCumber will help “tee off” the renovations of West Palm Beach’s historic golf course on Tuesday, May 12, 2009 at 10:00 a.m.  The golf course clubhouse is located at 7001 Parker Avenue, just south of Forest Hill Blvd.

The $3 million renovation project is being called a “restoration.”  The upgrades will reinforce the course’s original design, crafted by legendary golf course designer Dick Wilson in 1947.

McCumber Golf is managing the restoration, which is helping to support the local economy by creating approximately 25 construction jobs.
