One of the most critical yet overlooked pieces of the renovation to 8 White is the contour changes to the putting surface. Like most greens at NSCC, the putting surface on 8 White existed as a relatively flat green. While the green featured a small decline to the rear right and left, the majority of the putting surface offered little interest. In designing the plan for the eighth green, Ron Forse, golf course architect, looked to enhance the existing contours by building up and expanding the rear of the green. This new contour allows for more interesting putting, a better view from the tee, and an improved ability for the green to hold lower trajectory golf shots.
