Rosewood Lakes Golf Course closed to the public this morning, as construction of Phase II of the Southeast Connector project has officially begun. Rosewood Lakes will remain closed for the remainder of the 2015 season.

City of Reno staff met with The First Tee of Northern Nevada, the contractor for Rosewood Lakes, and it was determined that the best option at this time is to close the golf course during the initial heavy construction period.

“We feel that there are safety concerns with having golfers actively cross a construction zone that is also used by heavy construction vehicles,” says Andy Bass, Director of the City of Reno’s Parks, Recreation, and Community Services department. “We also believe that the noise, dust, and movement of heavy machinery will create an unpleasant environment to play golf.”

During the closure, First Tee will complete the necessary improvements to reopen the golf course as a nine-hole public course some time next year. It is anticipated that Rosewood Lakes Golf Course will reopen in spring 2016.
