All 18 greens have been resurfaced with Champion Ultra Dwarf grass since last year’s event. The 681-yard, par-5 fifth hole was also re-designed, lowering the green and moving it slightly to make it more reachable.
The Senator Course has been closed for renovation on June 1.
“You can tell there’s been a massive change to the golf course in terms of the grass they’re using around the greens,” Kim said. “I was told earlier in the week there hasn’t been any play since June, which is a huge testament to the commitment that the people of the RTJ have with the LPGA.
“It makes us feel like queens. The fairways are pristine, there hasn’t been a pitch mark on the green. It’s pretty remarkable. But it’s hard. The greens are moving very, very fast. They’re moving true.”
Kim knows some things haven’t changed about the tournament in college football country.
“It’s going to be warm,” she said. “And there’s going to be a lot of Alabama fans. Roll Tide.”
