Each Wednesday, we feature a construction story, image or detail drawing from a past or recent project at Wilkus Architects. It’s our goal to generate conversation with these weekly posts so please comment below. 2014 skyway open

This week, we decided to mix it up a bit. The sketches and images below give you a sneak peek into the hole that we have designed and built for the 2014 Skyway Open Golf Tournament. We had a great team that developed a great design and spent many hours during the construction phase. Everything was done in-house. We can't wait to share and play the hole with everyone! The event gears up this weekend so grab your putters and we'll see you on the links!
