Running Horse Construction Continues

Running Horse Course Construction Continues

24 August 2006 - The PGA has committed to come to Fresno next year to play a course that's not yet complete.

Only two holes are done at the Running Horse Golf Course in southwest Fresno, but the course is scheduled to be completed in December.
Running Horse will host its inaugural PGA tournament between October 22nd and 28th of next year.

While there is much work to be done, the PGA is confident the course will be ready by the fall of 2007.

"I'm moving forward under the assumption the course is going to be ready," said tournament director Bob Jeffrey. "I have no reason to think otherwise. Again, its something the PGA Tour is definitely aware of and wants to track, but at this point we have no reason to think it won't be ready."

"We have nine holes that are totally ready to be seeded. We're holding off seeding, because it is so hot right now," said Tom O'Meara, from Running Horse.

City leaders say the PGA event will bring in over $50 million to the local economy.
