The bunkers surrounding the 8th green were among those most in need of restoration. During the 1940s and 50s, the original MacKenzie-designed bunkers were all but removed to reduce maintenance costs. Later, an attempt was made to restore them but the reconstruction of several years ago made their lips much too high, and thereby increased the severity of the contours working into the green. Additionally, over time the back left and right portions of the green were lost; this has been restored.
The pages below provide before & after photographs of various holes at Pasatiempo Golf Club that have recently or are currently undergoing restoration work prescribed by Tom Doak’s master plan.
