Coral Gables, FL

Superintendent Eric J. von Hofen with assistants Matt Dauphinias and Tim Williams on the renovation of the prestigious Riviera CC in Coral Gables, Florida. This project is one of the most thorough and radical renovations you have ever seen in a residential community. Installing CapillaryFlow in all bunkers is just one of the many tasks undertaken to make this golf course one of the best conditioned in Florida for decades to come. Eric and his crew works with Quality Grassing among other contractors to upgrade everything possible to achieve the highest quality, and renowned architect Kip Schulties is responsible for the restoration of the original design intent in a new and strategic fashion. This is going to be a real gem in a few months time and one of the absolute best private club golf courses in the USA. Be sure to follow the extremely cool drone videos of the renovation on Youtube at:
