Billy Casper to the rescue

There were times when it seemed as though it might never happen, but Billy Casper Golf has helped a homeowners’ group in Bastrop, Texas, reopen its golf course. ColoVista Country Club, which had been overgrown with eight-foot weeds and scorched by fire, had been closed for more than three years before the home owners engaged BCG to revive it.

“Billy Casper Golf has a wonderful vision about what ColoVista can be,” Carson Stephens, the president of ColoVista Golf Club Property Owners Association, said in a press release. “Together, we will build an excellent golf and lifestyle experience.”

The 16-year-old layout may never again be what it used to be – it had once been ranked among the state’s top tracks -- but right now that really doesn’t matter to ColoVista’s residents. “This community has been separated since the course closed,” one of them told the Austin Statesman. “Now we all have somewhere to come and be together.”
