June 2016 Distinguished Facility-of-the-Year AwardsThe new, private cushioned hard court at the Nelson Residence in Wisconsin Dells, Wis., is the 2015 Residential Silver Award winner. The owners wanted a court complete with lighting, a seating area and a music system they could use for entertaining—and they wanted it set in the middle of a well-known 18-hole golf course they had developed. As such, the court and surrounding area had to meet aesthetic requirements to match their home and the golf course design. One challenge in constructing the court was the several feet of elevation changes at the site, which required stone retain-ing walls. The owners chose a natural stone to complement the golf course and their home. The retaining wall was kept several feet from the sides of the court to allow surface drain-age from the court to seep into the stone base and into drain tiles. Drainage around the exterior of the court is through natural landscaped swales.
