In 2008, the Pomme de Terre Golf Club officially opened 10 new holes, creating for the first time an 18-hole course in the Morris area. The new holes were blended into existing holes, such as the course's signature hole. The renovation project included the construction of a 3,500 square foot clubhouse, construction of new cart paths, the purchase of new carts, some hole redesign, weed eradication and tree removal and green repairs.Photo courtesy Morris Sun Tribune.
