Time to break ground on the new golf course that is coming to Western New York designed by Jack Nicklaus. The golf course in South Buffalo will begin work in April and a lot needs to be done, beginning with prepping the land that was once where the steel mill used to be.

The new course will allow the South Park golf course to be removed and Frederick Law Olmsted's arboretum to be restored, Kevin Gaughan, president of Nicklaus Olmsted Buffalo, Inc.


Gaughan's plan also calls for redesigning the Delaware Park golf course, with an idea of using less space to permit restoration of a portion of Olmsted's original meadow. A vocational center for city youth for learning about land and water conservation, botany and agronomy is another part of the plan.

The project is expected to cost about $10 million.
