Transforming Omaha's Fontenelle Golf Course
Although golf course homes are popular, one golf course, the Fontenelle, is being transformed into a park. This transformation will be huge with crews adding new walking trails, trees, and landscaping. Hundreds of dead trees are being removed and a trail loop that will be about 1.3 miles, will follow the perimeter of the park. With 80 acres of green space, this park will be an excellent place for frisbee golf. As well, a new shelter will be going up by the old clubhouse. It is hoped that by spring, the Fontenelle Golf Course will have been transformed into a bright, open park perfect for picnics, jogging, frisbee golf, and more. With a different kind of golf course and a huge park that everyone can enjoy, residents in surrounding neighborhoods such as Northwest Community Club, Fairfax, and Fontenelle View have a lot to look forward to this spring!
