SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The grand reopening celebration of Bacon Park Golf Course is happening in Savannah. 

O.C. Welch took over management of the park at the end of last year. On Saturday, visitors played golf with some local golf celebrities. Welch says they have cleared out years' worth of dead trees and are now moving to phase two of their renewal of Bacon Park Golf Club.

"We are really excited about it, it is going to be really great. We hope to have, you know, one of the nicest municipal courses in the country when we are finished with it. We are trying to put the "park" back in Bacon Park Golf Course," said O.C. Welch, O.C. Welch Golf Properties. 

The festivities wrapped up on Saturday night, complete with a fireworks display at 9 p.m.
