he Eagle-Vail Golf Club’s range opens Saturday and the course is scheduled to break out its lower 10 holes for play, starting April 14.Please note that the clubhouse and golf shop will not be open due to renovations when the range opens. Range balls can be purchased down at the ball machine with cash or credit card. All previous range keys can also be used.New for 2012 is GPS in the carts and a completed course renovation.”I’m really excited about the new and improved golf experience we are offering,” said Ben Welsh, Eagle-Vail’s golf professional since 2005. “We have removed more than a dozen bunkers, re-aligned three holes, paved the cart paths and have a whole new fleet of carts equipped with a state of the art GPS system.! Pinnacle Passes, the only season pass offered at Eagle-Vail, are now on sale for $1099 through the end of April, when the price will be $1199 until pass sales end May 15. Pinnacle Passes can be purchased on line only at http://www.eaglevailgolfclub.com. The pass includes unlimited golf with cart & unlimited play at Willow Creek Par 3. Some tee-time restrictions apply to this limited time offer.Remodeling the Eagle-Vail course has taken two years with work being done in the shoulder and off-seasons for minimal disruption of course play. Hole No.3 was removed which realigns play along the Eagle River to increase pace of play. The new Hole No.5 (previously No. 6) was lengthened to a 398-yard, par 4. The shared green was replaced with fairway and a new green created to the east. Play along this par-4 still goes across and alongside the Eagle River. A new par-3 hole was created which will now be the new Hole No. 8. The 16th green was rebuilt also, nearly doubling the size of the putting surface and approach area. Greens fees for early play are $40 for 10 holes or $60 for all-you-can-play.
