The golf course received renovations in their pro shop and snack bar totaling $330,000, while the bowling center renovated their snack bar, front counter, sound and lighting improvements with a total of $320,000.

The bowling experience was enhanced for customers though new food options, scoring system, pin deck lighting, drop down screens and a new bumper system.

In addition, the golf staff executed over $100,000 in self-help objects to improve the renovations of 11 tee boxes, target greens on the driving range and a greens nursey.

“We are excited to have the renovations completed for both places allowing the facilities to provide better service for our customers at Dyess,” said Tony Boob, 7th FSS community service flight chief. “The restorations couldn’t have happened without the expertise of the engineers and great craftsmen they have in the shops on Dyess.”

The 7th FSS staff hopes Dyess members enjoy the changes made to these facilities for years to come.

“The people of Dyess deserve these renovations, especially the families,” said Steve Bush, 7th FSS bowling manager. “Because we are sending our Airmen out the door for operations and deployments, why shouldn’t their families get the best? This is for their morale and well-being. We are here to serve them.”
