In 2014 the Corporate Employees Recreation Association choose Colligan Golf Design to revive the 45-year-old course. All the tees on the course were renovated, the fairways were designed to hold shots and to improve drainage. The fairways were also converted from common Bermudagrass to 419. A new irrigation system has been designed to make more efficient use of water. Greens and their surrounds have been completely redesigned and reshaped to be traditional in appearance and more user friendly for the higher handicap player while presenting more of a challenge to the better player. The new course is complemented by the 14-acre driving range and state of the art short game practice facility. This practice facility has been the catalyst for a new First Tee program for those counties west of Fort Worth.
