In case you hadn’t heard, the Big Bend Golf Center has new owners. Mr. Choe decided to sell the golf range after a number of years (I think around 14) to put all his energy into his new sports bar. The new owners Mr. and Mrs. Kim could not be nicer or more enthusiastic about making changes and updates. I have been amazed at how they have taken every suggestion I have made to heart. And they move fast! Only a couple of days after suggesting that they tear down that old dilapidated shed that blocked the view of the grass tees, they had Jose out there knocking it down and trimming trees. It was so exciting to see!
New balls have arrived (at least half the balls are new) and they have begun to paint the old rusty handrail. Possibly the biggest change is that they completely cleared out all the junk in the proshop. I had no idea it was so roomy! For those of you that haven’t been there for a while, you won’t recognize it!
Plans for new mats, more painting and even a putting green are under way! With it’s prime location and roomy covered tee line, Big Bend is on it’s way to being one of the top practice facilities in the St. Louis metro area.
