Citiparks and PFDs partner for Schenley Park Renovations
Schenley Park course promoter Scott Heintzleman and PFDS course superintendent J. Gary Dropcho met with Pittsburgh Parks and Recreation Director Duane Ashley on 2/27/08 with a partnership proposal to renovate the 20 year-old Schenley Links.
The meeting was a huge success, with Mr. Ashley agreeing on the spot to fund the purchase of replacing all the baskets on the course, repairing broken tee pads, and proposing the installation of a synthetic turf product on some of the tee pads as a demonstration project.
PFDS pledged its volunteers to install the new equipment and to fund, produce and install new signs on the Red and White tees.
It looks pretty certain that these improvements will be made in the Spring and Summer of 2008. Get ready PFDS members -- you will be called to action soon to contribute to the life of one of the region's oldest and most popular courses in Schenley Park.
