Davis Love III drops by to see ongoing Belmont Golf Course renovation project | Golf

The renovation will also include a putting course just under an acre in size, a driving range and a putting green.

After Belmont was opened in 1916, it was renovated by Donald Ross in 1927.

But the current renovation is restoring portions of the course back to the way it first was. Nine of the 12 holes on the main course will have original greens.

“It’s just, trying to bring the history back,” Love said.

Belmont isn’t short on history, as the only course in Virginia to host a PGA major: the 1949 PGA Championship, won by Sam Snead. Ben Hogan also won the Richmond Invitational there, four years earlier.

But space was one of the reasons First Tee and Love Golf Design opted to split the course into a 12-hole circuit

But the deal that netted them a championship, the franchise’s 17th, wasn’t a trade for the present. It was a deal for the future — the next great Laker celebrating a championship.

Davis isn’t leaving. The way he’s played in his first season in purple and gold, it’s obvious he’s just getting started. He’s been the perfect partner for LeBron James and it’s hard to imagine a better situation.

Davis can become a free agent after the season, but he’s expected to sign a max-level deal
