STEVENS POINT, WI (WSAU) If you always wanted to play the “flower hole” at the Sentry World golf course in Stevens Point, you’ll have to wait until 2014. Sentry Insurance said today it will close the course next year for renovations.
C-E-O Pete McPartland said the original designer of the course – Robert Trent Jones Junior – will work with Sentry on the project. The company says the goal is to upgrade and change several holes, while maintaining the integrity of the 69-hundred-51-yard par-72 course.
Sentry World was among the first upscale golf facilities in Wisconsin when it opened in 1982. It includes numerous lakes, native birch and pine trees, and five acres of flower-beds.
The course is best-known for the all-flower hole, the par-3, 173-yard 16th.
