Project Design

These exhibits below show utility pipes and ponds layout, golf course improvements/restoration and interim routing for 18 holes during construction.

Summary of Changes

  • Addition of a new pond between holes 4 and 5
  • Enlargement of the existing pair of ponds near the greens for holes 3 and 5
  • Hole 3 has been divided into two separate holes (new holes 12 and 13)
  • Holes 4 & 5 were remodeled (new holes 14 & 15)
  • Hole 6 tee box area raised (new hole 16)
  • All holes will be renumbered – "front 9" becomes the "back 9" and vice versa
  • Existing hole 9 is eliminated from course sequence, (still available if needed)
  • Par becomes 71
  • See additional information on the golf course site

During construction, temporary holes are provided to retain a full 18-hole course.

The City completed preliminary planning in 2016 to define sewer and drainage system improvements needed for elimination of basement flooding and surface flooding in the area of Alverson, Grand, Rucker and Hoyt, Colby and Wetmore between 4th and 10th Street and at Everett Community College Rainier Hall (a project formerly called “Northwest Neighborhood Stormwater Separation (NWSS) Project”). The study determined that a new separate storm drainage network should be constructed in this area – similar to the work done in the nearby Sewer M area to the south, however no sewer replacement is needed.
