COLLEGE STATION - With more than $3 million in new construction, the Texas A&M golf course promises new jobs, new money and new challenges for golf fans.

Rene Rangel is the CEO for Sterling Golf. "I'm really excited for the whole Aggie Nation to look at it," said Rangel. "Every place you go around on campus, it's all about pride and honor. I think the Aggie community is going to be very proud of what's been done to their campus."

Among the improvements, the 18-hole course with 170 acres now offers two new lakes and more than 100 new bunkers. The course also boasts a new wall-to-wall irrigation system with 1,200 irrigation heads. That's up from about 500.

Rangel said he expects the course to come with about 50 to 60 job openings.

Texas A&M footed the bill for half of the project, Sterling Golf out of Houston paid for the other half. The public course is expected to open in mid-October.
