Jack Nicklaus Makes Final Adjustments on New Golf Holes
On an unusually cool and rainy day in May, Jack Nicklaus visited the final eight holes of the North Course. Jack along with his team and the Sunrise team reviewed each hole including the changes he had made on his last visit. He also carefully looked at each green and made adjustments. He is very happy with the final holes and the construction progress.
