<p>Powder Horn GC to begin bunker work</p>


Course improvements will be completed by summer of 2019

Sheridan, Wyoming (August 29, 2018) – The Powder Horn Golf Club, a 27-hole private club in Sheridan, Wyoming, will soon begin an extensive bunker renovation project on its Stag and Eagle courses. The project is slated to begin this fall and will be completed early in the 2019 golf season.


Tom Schroeder, a partner of original golf course architect Dick Bailey, will oversee the bunker renovation project and Phoenix-based Desert Reflections will work with The Powder Horn Golf Club’s agronomy team to complete the state-of-the-art Capillary Concrete liner system. As part of the bunker renovation, bunkers will be regraded, reshaped and rebuilt incorporating a technically advanced drainage and liner system featuring Capillary Concrete. This new generation lining method increases the speed at which water flows through the sand and the lining; minimizing contamination, reducing maintenance, and producing superior consistency. The new bunkers are expected to last for well over a decade.

“Our owners are committed to making The Powder Horn the premier golf experience in the West for our members and their guests," said The Powder Horn Golf Club’s General Manager Robert Kearney. "Our staff takes pride in maintaining every aspect of the course while preserving the natural beauty of the land. These upgrades will improve the playability of the golf course and enhance Dick Bailey’s original design."

The Powder Horn is frequently rated the number one course in Wyoming and has received numerous awards and recognition, including being named “Best Wyoming Golf Course to Play” by Golf Digest, and honored as one of the “Best Residential Golf Courses in America” and a “Top 100 Modern Golf Course” by Golfweek.
