The Caesarea Development Corporation has announced a comprehensive upgrade to the Caesarea Golf Club course, but will continue to serve the golf-playing public throughout the planned 18-month construction period. The new course will be designed by Pete Dye, one of the world's top golf course architects, to meet the highest international standards. The project includes redesigning and rebuilding the entire course and the establishment of new training areas. Two or three new holes will be built during June-August, at the end of which time nine out of the current 18 holes will be closed. During the construction period, golfers will play nine holes, and every few months as the work progresses, the holes that make up the shortened course will change. The CDC intends to have the new course ready for a trial run prior to hosting golf events during the 18th Maccabiah in July 2009. Dr. Ron Frumkin, an expert in ecological impact assessment, has been hired by the CDC to help preserve the natural local environment. The Caesarea Golf Club's other areas and activities - including the driving range, training course, pro shop, restaurant, and academy for youth and children - will operate normally during the construction period.
