Roseland redesign tees up for better storm drainage

The Roseland Golf and Curling Club plans to undergo a redesign that will improve storm water management in the Lennon drain and Roseland areas. 

The city-owned course will dig in five ponds for storm water to drain into on rainy days. 

"One of the really exciting aspects of this for golfers is that this will return the water challenges to the course as they existed in the original 1926 design of famed golf course architect Donald Ross," said Roseland general manager Phil Roberts in a news release. 

The returning ponds will feature aquatic habitat enhancements, tree planting, and "environmentally sensitive areas" on holes eight and nine, according to the news release. 

The club is working with the city, the Essex Conservation Authority and a golf course architect on the new project. 

A portion of the course and the entire Par 3 short course will be closed for most of October while construction takes place. But a special nine-hole configuration plus a bonus hole for $19.26 will be available as of Monday.
