IDCC Tennis and Golf Conditions Update

All hard and soft tennis courts are open and available for play (when it's not raining, which has been a lot the last week). 

We are looking to open the golf course on or about Tuesday, October 10th, conditions permitting. Originally we were scheduled to open on the 3rd of October but delayed due to 12 inches of rain, the King Tide and a full moon.


Here is the new 8th hole green in the 7th week of the grow in

IDCC Condition Update and Status

Generally speaking, all of the club's facilities "dodged a bullet" when Irma turned westward and made landfall in the Keys and near Naples instead of in our area of Island Dunes. We did however sustain significant damage with broken trees and debris on all holes, in and around the club entrance, parking lot, tennis courts, pro shop and bridges. 
A number of the older and larger broken trees will have to be removed by professionals after being on IDCC property for decades. At this point we expect the tennis hard courts to be open Monday September 25, two soft courts open on Wednesday September 27 and the remainder as soon as we can get more material delivered and installed. 
The golf course will reopen on or around Tuesday October 3rd so that cleanup can be concluded and we may finish the replacement project for the bridge between the 4th and 5th holes. That work was underway when the storm hit and caused a delay of at least two weeks or more.
A special "shout out" needs to go to Conray our Tennis Pro, Rick our Golf Superintendant and the entire IDCC staff for doing a great job cleaning up. The pictures below tell the story...

New #8 Hole After Three Weeks of Growth

Smooth Transition from Sod to Bunker to Green 
Left of the Green
Here are pics of the newly-filled bunker 
Another Angle, that's a Perfect Seam from Sod to Green




The Story Behind This New Bunker

When the course architect recommended a new sand trap on #8  we were concerned about changing the original Joe Lee design. After researching as many par 3 holes over water we could find that Joe designed we found one over water 160 yards long with bunker to the left and asked for that to be duplicated on our #8 hole. Everyone likes the look and, as we believe our course is likely the only executive course Joe's ever designed ,we want everyone to know that we're going to great lengths to adhere to the originality of Joe Lee's design principles.
