Sherrill Park Golf Course No. 2: A Renovation by Landscapes Unlimited

Landscapes Unlimited -- Sherrill Park G.C

Golf course renovations are like delicate surgery: a blend of precise planning, skilled execution, and a touch of artistry.

Sherrill Park Golf Course No. 2 in Richardson, Texas, a mere half-hour drive north of Dallas, is about to undergo such a transformative procedure, with Landscapes Unlimited at the helm.

This renowned firm has been selected to oversee an extensive renovation project that promises to rejuvenate this beloved course.

An Anticipated Makeover

Renovations at Sherrill Park No. 2 are more than just a facelift; they are a comprehensive overhaul aimed at enhancing the playing experience.

The project, a collaboration between Landscapes Unlimited and Greenscapes Six, will focus on remodeling tees, fairways, bunkers, and greens, alongside the installation of a cutting-edge irrigation system.

Originally crafted by Leon Howard in 1980 and reimagined by D.A. Weibring and Steve Wolfard in 2021, this course is poised for a new era of excellence.

Avid Golfer Magazine has dubbed it the “most anticipated renovation” among the 76 public golf courses in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The Dallas Morning News ranks it as the No. 4 public course, highlighting its significant status in the local golfing community.

Owned and operated by the City of Richardson, the course thrives under the seasoned guidance of Head Golf Professional Ronny Glanton, who has introduced thousands to the game over his four-decade tenure.

The Course Layout

Sherrill Park No. 2 is known for its wide fairways and ample scoring opportunities, but don’t be deceived—this course can bite.

Stretching from 4,810 to 6,375 yards, it offers a par 70 challenge with a variety of tests for golfers of all skill levels.

The opening hole sets the tone with a demanding carry over a creek, leading to a sloped green that makes putts a nerve-wracking affair.

The sixth hole, nearly 300 yards long, tempts bravery with water guarding the left and a sizable bunker awaiting errant shots.

The final hole, a par four, requires precision on approach shots, thanks to daunting greenside bunkers.

“Sherrill Park No. 2’s layout is interesting, fun, and often shows relative bite to golfers of all skill levels,” says Larry Barefield, Senior Project Manager of Landscapes Unlimited.

“Working alongside Greenscapes Six and its experienced team brings together a treasure trove of talent to lift No. 2 up to modern standards.”

A Sister Course with its Own Challenges

While Sherrill Park No. 2 prepares for its grand makeover, its sister course, Sherrill Park Golf Course No. 1, continues to challenge golfers with its own distinctive layout.

This par 72 course stretches from 5,010 to 7,016 yards and is particularly notorious for its first hole—a sharp dogleg right at 375 yards—and the formidable 14th hole, which demands navigation of wind and water hazards along the right side of the fairway and green.

The Future of Sherrill Park No. 2

The renovation of Sherrill Park No. 2 is more than an upgrade; it’s a promise of an enhanced golfing experience that respects the course’s legacy while embracing modern standards.

With Landscapes Unlimited and Greenscapes Six driving the project, the future of Sherrill Park No. 2 looks brighter than ever.

Golfers can look forward to a course that challenges and delights in equal measure, ensuring its place as a cherished gem in the Dallas-Fort Worth golfing landscape.
