The 105-year-old Cobbs Creek Golf Course in West Philadelphia is set to undergo a $65 million restoration starting this spring, which will include a new community and educational center, reports the Philadelphia Business Journal.

The course closed in 2020 due to frequent flooding, a fire in 2016 destroying the course’s clubhouse, capital requirements and security concerns.

The restoration is expected to be completed in 2023 before opening to the public in 2024, PBJ.com Reports. Officials hope the redesign can help the city come to a halt on the PGA Tour.

The project is funded by the Cobbs Creek Foundation, which will lease the course site to the city for 70 years. The lease is paid for through the investment of the non-profit organization as well as its continued work on and around the golf course.

PBJ.com examines how the Cobbs Creek Foundation will aim not only to renovate the public golf course but also to become a neighborhood hub.
