Funk to design first course, in Colorado

Fred Funk, a 16-time winner on the PGA and Champions tours, will create his first “signature” design in Windsor, Colorado, at a 2,800-home community that aims to become a “resort destination for die-hard golfers,” the Coloradan reported.

Funk’s 18-hole track will be centerpiece of RainDance National Golf Club, a property being developed by Water Valley Land Company.

“There truly is no limit for the potential of RainDance on the national stage now that we have teamed up with Mr. Funk and his talented crew,” Water Valley’s principal said in a press release.

Funk’s crew mainly consists of Harrison Minchew, who’ll co-design the golf course. “This particular piece of land has got my attention,” Minchew told Golf Course Architecture, “and I don’t want to screw it up because it’s so good.”

RainDance will take shape on property just a short drive from Water Valley Pelican Lakes community, which features a 27-hole, Ted Robinson-designed complex. Lind hasn’t yet set a date for the groundbreaking.
