Fall: Time for Projects

Fall is the time for projects.  This year we are leveling tees, widening fairways and installing drainage in 6 more greens (#4, #6, #11, #12, #14 and #16).  The drainage will begin next week and continue until we are finished.  Our goal is to have only 1 green out of play at a time and no greens out of play on Fri, Sat and Sun.

Preparing #14 tee for sod.  The rain this week slowed our progress.  To date #5 and #6 tee have been completed and may open in a few weeks.

#14 fairway widening and rough leveling soon after seeding.

10 days after seeding - you can see the difference in the bent and bluegrass as it comes up.  We had perfect timing for seed germination.
