Comprehensive Enhancement Plan approved and moving forward at Dennis Pines and Dennis Highlands Golf Courses on Cape Cod.

In early 2014, the Golf Committee for the Town of Dennis, Massachusetts approved a Comprehensive Enhancement Plan developed with Golf Architect, Robert McNeil, ASGCA for far reaching improvements at Dennis Pines and Dennis Highlands Golf Course in the Town of Dennis on Cape Cod.

The improvements will include all new bunkering, new tees, cart path revisions, tree management, and fairway recontouring. The courses each host 45-50,000 rounds of golf each season by local players and tourism traffic in the summer months. Dennis Highlands has long been considered a staple in the community hosting many Cape Cod events offering a wonderful string of rolling corridors. The Pines Course is a bit more dramatic and challenging with the pine groves squeezing the fairways and putting a premium on more accurate shotmaking.

The execution of the plans for each course will take place over a five year period beginning in the Fall of 2014. Many of the changes are driven by improving playability, pace of play and reduced maintenance. These are driving trends in the current renovation arena. McNeil has completed over 100 projects both new and renovation with this being his first opportunity on Cape Cod.

“I couldn’t be more excited to work with the great people at Dennis Pines and Dennis Highlands. They take great pride in the conditioning of the golf course, working hard to give the players some of the best public golf the Cape has to offer. The vision and plan to bring the courses to the next level has been a team effort as will the execution of each detail, says McNeil”.
