Golf Course Developers Line Up Proposed Site


A proposed golf course in the Eastern Districts may have taken another swing toward becoming a reality as two key players in the development of the Cayman Golf Club at Ironwood recently returned to Grand Cayman.

Arnold Palmer Design Company Vice-President Thad Layton and Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill club Vice-President Roy Saunders analysed the site of the proposed club.

According to an Ironwood Development newsletter, Layton said about the visit, “We were particularly interested in documenting the mature trees on site to be saved and incorporated into the design of the golf course.

“We examined the characteristics of the soil and topography.
“The easterly trade winds also have to be taken into account for safety and for the golf course design strategy. Every hole changes direction and, again, the wind is an issue.”

The proposed golf club is slated to host a 72-hole championship course, a restaurant and a 20-acre practice facility. The course is planned for around 7,100 yards with five different tee boxes.

Ironwood developers continue to discuss with Government plans for the development of the East-West Arterial Road in order to push ahead with their plans.
