The Royal Oak Golf Center today announced it has completed a $1.4 million renovation, which was designed and constructed by Royal Oak-based Krieger Klatt Architects and Ronnisch Construction Group.
Redevelopment, which began last fall, included an expansion to 32 covered, heated tees on the practice range, a new snack shop and Adventure Golf building and entrance, as well as updates to the 18-hole mini-golf championship course. A new outdoor pavilion also provides meeting space for up to 100 people and can be reserved for birthdays, corporate events, charity fundraisers, family golf outings, and private golf clinics.
After nearly 70 years of operation, the current owners decided a renovation was required to upgrade the 27-acre facility.
“We wanted to create an elevated experience for the recreational golfer and the thousands of people who enjoy our Adventure Mini Golf every year,” says Frank Sheckell, one of the center’s owners. “We worked hard to transform the space from some place you might come to practice every once in a while to a place you’ll want to come regularly, bring family and friends, and enjoy improving your skills.”
The facility will now allow golfers to practice year-round, with heated and covered tees for cold temperatures and shade and overhead fans to keep the space cool during the summer months. The additional 53 open-air tees, plus the short game area and its 3,500 square-foot putting green, sand bunker, and chipping green, are all available for use.
The Royal Oak Golf Center boasts more than six million golf balls hit on the range, and 33,000 rounds of mini golf are played annually. Hours are Monday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Tuesday-Sunday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
