OSO BEACH GOLF COURSE & LOZANO GOLF CENTER

In February, Foresight Golf officially began managing the municipal courses in Corpus Christi – Oso Beach Golf Course and the Lozano Golf Center. For years, both courses have been the mainstay of public golf in Corpus and continue to be incredibly popular and highly revered by the local golfers and the Winter Texans that make their way south every year.

OSO BEACH GOLF COURSE & LOZANO GOLF CENTER It has taken only a few short months for golfers to see some of the changes they were hoping for in terms of course conditions and employee performance. As early as April, golf coaches from as far away as La Vernia were noticing improvements on the courses and the professional operations as their teams competed in a tournament at both courses.

With the rich and storied histories of both Oso and Lozano, Foresight strives to return the courses to the terrific conditions they sported when people like Hogan, Snead, Nelson and Zaharias walked their fairways. This restoration includes plans to renovate the Lozano Executive Course and practice area into an even better facility to learn, practice and grow in the game.

Max A. Mandel
MUNICIPAL GOLF COURSE

Breathtakingly overlooking the Rio Grande River just north of Laredo, Texas, the new Max A. Mandel Municipal Golf Course is scheduled to open in early 2012. This project is the vision and collaboration of the City of Laredo and the wellknown and highly respected Max A. Mandel family. Significant planning has taken place over the last several years with the ultimate goal being to bring the community of Laredo and South Texas an exceptional golf venue that its residents can enjoy and play often, as a result of its remarkable value and affordable fees. Seeing what Foresight Golf has done throughout Texas in accomplishing this goal, the City of Laredo’s first step was to select Foresight Golf to be the lease operator and the development consultant to represent the City in the design and construction of the golf course. There was incredible interest on behalf of the golf industry in this project and after an intense and competitive selection process; Robert Trent Jones, II and Landscapes Unlimited, Inc. were selected to be the design build team.

MUNICIPAL GOLF COURSEThe golf course is strategically situated on 270 acres of atypical South Texas Mesquite land. The site has almost a mile of Rio Grande River frontage with the clubhouse and Holes 8, 9, 15 and 16 playing directly alongside and overlooking the river. It is a par 72 golf course that has an excellent balance of drama, playability, risk and reward that will make for exciting and enjoyable golf for all levels of player. Says Ed Miller, Foresight Golf’s Chief Operating Officer and the consultant for the golf course construction; “I honestly cannot believe how good this golf course is turning out!

The synergy that has developed between the team building this golf course, working on this site that is naturally made for golf, is resulting in a golf course that is going to become known as one of the best in the State.” For more information and photography of this project in process, please go to:
