300 N Green Bay Ave, Lake Forest IL (Onwentsia Club)

Scope of work:

Masonry Condition Assessment

Project description:

Onwentsia Club is an 18-hole golf course in the central United States, located in Lake Forest, Illinois. Charles B. Macdonald designed the first nine holes in 1895; the second nine was designed in 1898 by Herbert J. Tweedie, James Foulis and Robert Foulis. The course was subsequently redesigned by Tom Doak. The club has panoramic views of the property at almost all points, and the Doak redesign keeps the integrity of some holes intact. The fescue and multi-tiered putting surfaces compensate for length on this gem. The name “Onwentsia” may have been inspired by the Illini name for the tuliptree, which grows in well-watered Illinois ecosystems.

For this project we did a masonry condition assessment. This assessment detailed current conditions, presumed causing of the stated conditions, and a recommended course of treatment.
