Ryan Welborn knew that with his limited experience, the chances of succeeding as a professional golfer were about as slim as the fairways at the U.S. Open. He had little experience as a junior golfer, basically skipped college golf and then breezed through an amateur career without compiling much of a resume.

The makeover of Mile Square Golf Course in Fountain Valley is underway, and it's expected that a second 18-hole layout will open next spring. Since June, earthmoving equipment has been scouring the piece of land north of the existing course, shaping the fairways and digging eight lakes. Work on the irrigation system will start this week and there is about one more month of grading work remaining before they start planting grass.
