"There should be heroic carries but always an alternate route." (Alister MacKenzie 1920 - quoted in Golf As It Should Be, 1996 by Mark Parsinen)
The Scope of Work for our current course renovation at Granite Bay includes enlarging, moving and adding additional teeing levels to the course. The purpose for this is to provide additional teeing area, lengthen the course to just over 7000 yards and provide the alternate routes Dr. MacKenzie mentioned above.
Some of the big expansions are the tournament tees on #4, #9, #12 & #11 as well as pushing back for additional teeing area #13 & #14 club tees. Relocation of the forward ladies tees on #2 is in process and we are looking at some moves to #16 forward and combo ladies tees as well. Below are some pictures of what is happening to date on the Granite Bay Tee's.
Above is an overhead view of #9 tee showing the expansion and leveling of all levels as well as the addition of the new tournament tee.

Not much to look at right now, but picture shows an overhead view of the beginning of the new location for the forward cobble tees on #2 closer to the cart path.
