COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Jefferson golf course will open in late fall, a day after the city of Cleveland opened a major renovation to the site.
The Jefferson opened in 1921 and the city began the project in 2004.
The renovation will include new landscaping and improvements to the facility.
The project is expected to be complete in fall of 2021.
The city has scheduled the opening of the site for March 20.
Cleveland’s Jefferson will become the first golf course in the nation to be re-opened following a major overhaul.
The project will also include a new $200 million, $100 million fountain at the site of the historic golf course.
The $200M fountain will be the first fountain in the U.S. to have the same design as the historic Jefferson, which dates back to 1901.
In a statement, the city said it is “honored to be partnering with Jefferson Golf Course and the Cleveland Cavaliers” in reopening the site after the completion of renovations.
The Jefferson golf club will have a new layout, including a larger clubhouse and a new entrance, and new greens and greenside access.
The facility is expected a $200m renovation will be completed by late 2021.
Jefferson Golf Course is located at 1160 Main St. in Columbus, Ohio.
The site is near the Cleveland-Miles High School, where the city is hosting the NBA Finals for the first time.
