The I-94 West Chamber of Commerce cuts the ribbon, officially opening the newly remodeled hole 16 at Fox Hollow Golf Club in St. Michael. Holes 16 and 17 were redesigned to better protect the holes from Crow River flooding.

After a three-year process, the club renovated holes 16 and 17, with a grand opening July 19, as hosted by I-94 West Chamber of Commerce dignitaries.

“It’s a long story about Crow River flooding, fighting through some lean years because of the flooding, and now a much more flood-proof golf course that is drawing rave reviews,” said Eric Larson, Fox Hollow general manager and head golf professional.

To celebrate the occasion, the course hosted Fox Hollow charter members from the late 1980s who played the inaugural round, along with area golf architect Paul Kangas, who redesigned the holes and oversaw the renovation.

“We’re so excited about this redesign and grand opening,” Larson said.
