A master plan for the Warm Springs Golf Course shows a whole new look and new features for the city-owned course in the east end.
The master plan design by Insight Architects shows a raft of possible changes. A large new community center would anchor the changes. The design shows outdoor seating, expanded cart parking and a large new outdoor deck. One of the existing ponds on the course would be extended. The design shows a revamp of the parking lot and relocation of the entrance further south.
Greenbelt users would also see improvements – with the existing path tapered down in elevation and a new bridge built overhead for carts and golf course patrons. Currently, a rare Greenbelt stop sign sits at the path/cart intersection.
“Siting of the new clubhouse will occur near the current water feature which will be expanded to create a spectacular new 18th green,” Insight wrote in its description of the project. “The clubhouse relocation will allow existing parking to expand. A new site for the maintenance facility will allow for expansion and better access by grounds crews.”
The current clubhouse, a 4,220 square foot building, dates to 1971 according to property records.
Bonnie Shelton, communication manager for Boise Parks and Rec, says the changes aren’t imminent just yet.
“The design is for planning purposes and cost estimating only,” she said. “There is no timeline for the project or funding at this time.”
Parking lot improvements and a realignment of the Tram Trail nearby are already in the works, as BoiseDev previously reported.
