COLLEGE STATION - Six months since beginning renovations on the Texas A&M golf course, landscapers are nearly finished installing the new irrigation system and are smoothing out the soil in preparation for grass.

"If you think of it in four stages, we're just starting stage 4," Sterling Golf CEO Rene Rengal said. "We'll be planting grass within the next two weeks."

The university partnered with Aggie-owned Sterling Golf last fall to manage the multimillion dollar renovation that includes a redesign of the 18-hole course, a brand new driving range and the replacement of the irrigation system that dated to 1973.

The project was estimated to cost $5 million, but the project is expected to end up below budget with a projected cost down to $3.5 million. The course is expected to open in late September, but that could change if it doesn't rain enough throughout the summer.
