The course has ponds coming into play on at least six different occasions. In addition, numerous trees line the fairways that can alter your shots.
The 2016 renovation included the redesign, reconstruction, and re-grassing of 19 green complexes.
The greens had not been updated in the course's more than 40 years of operation. Many of the original greens had severe slopes that frustrated golfers, and there were very limited hole placement options. A survey of frequent players at Jamestown Park revealed that the main complaint of golfers was the excessive slope on the greens, which sometimes exceeded 7%.
George made dramatic changes to the slopes of the greens, which not only made play more enjoyable for golfers but also allowed for a much wider variety of hole placements. Drainage and irrigation improvements were also made to allow for better turf maintenance and more sustainable cultural practices for the future.
