WBAY covers potential changes to Shorewood landscape
Potential changes to Shorewood Golf Course drew the attention of area residents and the news media Tuesday (Jan. 10), as officials outlined a plan to remove some 180 of the course’s 1,600 trees. Course director Rick Warpinski offered a walking tour and public presentation on the potential removal, which would include some trees that are damaged, suppressed (not growing as well as nearby trees of the same age) or located in dense or unplayable areas. It was the latest in a series of information sessions to gauge input on the Shorewood Tree Management Plan, a project that aims to improve the golfing experience, reduce maintenance and cleanup, enhance efficiency in mowing rough areas and address safety concerns. The plan also would extend tee boxes on holes #3, #7 and #8.
