The Traver Creek Restoration Project is complete!
Thank you to all our golfers for your patience and continued support during our construction.
The City of Ann Arbor, in conjunction with Washtenaw County Drain Commission has done a "Traver Creek Restoration". The Back Nine (and only the back nine) at Leslie Park Golf Course was under construction from October 2012 to April 2013. It is now complete.
Traver Creek as it meanders through holes 10, 12 and 13 was cleaned, widened and restored. The ponds on 12 and 17 were dredged. The fairway and tees on 10 were raised. The approach area to 11 green was cleaned and raised. A new stream was added on holes 11 and 13. We also added substantial mound work on both sides of 18, left side of 13 and right side of 10. All of these improvements are being highlighted with 140 new trees and incredible new stonework and stonewalls between the creek and the greens on holes 10, 12 and 17. It truly is a spectacular improvement.
