As we look forward to our 80th year we introduce
Cripe Connects . . . a series of pieces connecting Cripe and its innovative design solutions to events and experiences in our city and surrounding communities.
Don’t Miss the BMW Championship – and the rest of Hamilton County
The world’s best golfers are arriving at Crooked Stick Golf Club for the 2016 BMW Championship being held September 8th through the 11th. Prior to the notoriety surrounding the 1991 PGA Championship, Cripe helped shaped the beauty and intimacy of the picturesque neighborhood surrounding this challenging golf course. Walking through the neighborhood, as well as on the course itself, is truly an experience to remember.
While you are at the Championship, and possibly parking at Coxhall Gardens, take the time to walk the grounds of the Gardens and visit the “centerpiece” amphitheater, the home of the 2005 Solheim Cup opening and closing ceremonies, the Bell Towers, the Coxhall Mansion and Cripe Pavilion. Cripe and the Hamilton County Parks have had a long standing relationship dating back to before we were fortunate enough to put pen to paper on the Coxhall Garden design.
If you aren’t spending all weekend at the Crooked Stick Golf Club, be sure to check out the other venues owned and operated by Hamilton County Parks, including Cool Creek Park and Nature Center, Potters Bridge Park, Strawtown Koteewi Park and their newest addition, Bray Family Homestead Park.
Cripe has been firmly engaged in Hamilton County for decades on projects such as Geist and Morse Reservoirs, 146th Street Biking and Hiking Trail, the design work with Pete Dye at The Bridgewater Club and Jack Nicklaus at the Sagamore Club, all provide outstanding opportunities for recreation and fun in Hamilton County.
So make sure to get out this week and watch Jordan Spieth, Ricky Fowler, Jason Day and others as they try to enhance their chances of winning the Fed Ex Cup, and take advantage of the beauty of Hamilton County.
