Sales STANDOUT The Black Course at Tiburon Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Fla., has reopened after a seven-month remastering project. The Greg Norman Golf Course Design team and Tiburon's director of agronomy Jeff Cathey , a 24-year GCSAA member, led the project. The Greg Norman-designed Black Course originally opened in 2001. During the remastering, Tiburon's Black Course underwent extensive greens, turf, irrigation and Green Blazer Award bunker renovations. Green surrounds and approaches were reconfigured to create more strategic shot options for players and also were regrassed with Celebration bermudagrass. Greens are now TifEagle bermudagrass. The addition of family tees, designed for members and guests with children, gives golfers six tee options when playing the Black Course, from 4,000 yards from the family tees to 6,949 yards from the championship tees.
