Good news for golfers: Black Jacks Crossing, the new golf course designed by Lanny Wadkins and under construction for over a year now, will have a soft opening in July followed by a grand opening in September 2010. Lajitas spokesman Stephen Dye said last week a fertilizer was put on the course last Monday and the area was closed while the turf matured.
The course was shaped by Forrest Fezler, one-time U.S. Open runner-up. The course is said to be breathtakingly beautiful with mountain holes "scenic enough to have a wedding in," Dye said, and a hole that features steam rising from a natural spring.
Dye said the decision on green fees has not been finalized but in the early stages of the redesign the word was that fees would be in the neighborhood of $125 per round, affordable for the average golfer today.
