Remodel Project Tees Off at Ladera Golf Course

Must read

Construction is underway on a new project at the Parks and Recreation Department’s (PRD) Ladera Golf Course. A 1,000 square foot remodel on the west side of the clubhouse building will create a new lounge area that connects to the existing outdoor patio.

“This investment will add value to Ladera for golfers and the entire community,” said PRD Director Dave Simon. “Play is up, customers are happy, and the improvements will take the atmosphere at the course to the next level.”

The patio will be closed during construction, but the course and café remain open. The project should be complete by spring. The Department of Municipal Development (DMD) is managing the project.

“Ladera is known for its great driving range, lakes, and beautiful desert setting,” said Patrick Montoya, director of DMD. “The new Ladera Golf Course lounge will soon be a gem for Westside golfers and neighbors.”

The total cost of the project is $714,402, with funding coming from City G.O. Bonds contributed by Councilor Louie Sanchez and state capital outlay funds contributed by State Senator Antonio Maestes. Dyron Murphy Architects created the design and Franken Construction is the contractor for the project.

Ladera, built in 1980, is the Westside’s premiere 27-hole golf course. PRD has invested more than $9 million dollars into the course over the last 20+ years, which has included a rebuild of the pro shop, café, and banquet room; a complete irrigation system replacement; install of solar panels in the parking lot; and replacement of the 18-hole cart path.
