Chandler, Arizona
Semi-private 18 hole golf course


Sunbird Golf Club is an existing semi-private 18 hole golf course located south of Phoenix in Chandler, Arizona. The course was designed in the early 1980s by Ted Robinson, Sr. as part of the Sunbird Golf Community. After nearly 30 years of neglect, the golf club retained Herfort Norby to create a long-range master plan and to subsequently renovate the sand bunkers. Much of the work was done in-house by the maintenance staff but we made frequent site visits to assist in completing the project. Bunkers were reshaped with new subsurface drainage and sand. Surrounds were regrassed with Bermuda and new irrigation was installed to provide improved coverage and water management.


Herfort Norby’s responsibilities included preparation of plans and cost estimates as well as periodic site visits to over-see the bunker renovation improvements.
