Emerald Greens Golf and Country Club
Hillsborough County, FL
Since 2003, Water Resource Associates (WRA) has been charged with all civil engineering design and construction management oversight for modifications to the 250-acre Emerald Greens Golf and Country Club located in Tampa, Florida. Prior to 2003, the course and associated club amenities were in disrepair, plagued by a number of issues including deteriorating roadway, water, sewer, and storm water infrastructure. Nearly all of the 250-acres exhibited adverse grading and drainage issues that impacted course play and maintenance, as well as surrounding properties.
WRA initially provided civil engineering design and permitting services for a major modification to the 15-acre clubhouse and recreational center (Core Area). WRA’s ability to quickly and efficiently identify, assess and resolve complex civil design issues associated with retrofitting the new infrastructure into the 30-year old site, resulted in WRA being retained to oversee the effort to reconstruct the entire 250-acre golf course and associated maintenance facilities. Since 2003, WRA has been responsible for the following:
- Civil engineering design and permitting the 15-acre clubhouse and recreational center (Core Area), including the construction of 56 town homes, a 50-unit condominium building, modified clubhouse and amenity facilities, and all associated water, sewer, storm water and roadway infrastructure;
- Oversight of course design to ensure proper grading, drainage and storm water modifications throughout the entire 250-acres;
- Tee, green and fairway realignments and grading modifications for target and line-of-site optimization;
- Design and permitting of a one-acre maintenance yard including all required infrastructure;
- Coordination and conflict resolution with surrounding property owners to resolve offsite grading and drainage issues and improve overall storm water functionality of the regional system; and
- Permitting and design coordination with local municipalities, the regional Water Management District and the State Department of Environmental Protection.
