LaBar Golf Lands Top 2 on the Golf Digest 2021 Best Renovated Golf Courses List

Looking back on the final day of the 2020 Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, OH, one might say it was anything but ordinary. While players were finishing their rounds, the LaBar Golf crew, sporting their well-known blue shirts, began the historic renovation on the sixth green that Sunday afternoon. The CBS anchors paid close attention, while the cameras showed the world just how a major renovation gets going — with an unprecedented overlap of on-going tournament play and the start of renovation and construction. Having been delayed six weeks because of the tournament’s postponement due to COVID, it was critical to hit the ground running.

Now in its 10th year in business, LaBar Golf has acquired an impressive portfolio and gained exposure to many of the most prestigious golf courses in the United States. Included in that portfolio are two of the top golf courses ranked by Golf Digest as the best renovations in 2021 — Muirfield Village Golf Club (1st Place) and Oakland Hills Country Club – South Course (2nd Place).

The historic renovation at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, MI, was a special project for LaBar Golf, especially having the opportunity to work alongside Hanse Golf Course Design.

“I truly believe this renovation was one of the best transformations of a golf course that I have ever been a part of,” said Rich LaBar (Owner and President of LaBar Golf), “and it was an absolute pleasure to work at both of these prestigious clubs with two of the best golf course architect teams in the business.”
