Austin Energy is proposing building an electric substation where the par 3 14th green now sits on the city-owned Morris Williams golf course along Manor Road in northeast Austin, paying the Parks and Recreation department an estimated $2 million in mitigation money for relocation of the hole and course renovations. Kevin Gomillion, Division Manager of Sports Management with the city of Austin, surveys the short uphill green that plays alongside Manor Road, providing access to the site. A new hole would be build behind him and to the right, making for more course renovations and altering of existing holes likely. Proposed plans would also enable the historic muny to renovate the clubhouse and cart barn, but as of now it is merely conjecture.
