Green Drainage - Part 2
Last year we installed drainage in 6 greens. This year we are doing another 6 greens (#4, #6, #11, #12, #14, #17). Today we started on #4 green. Our goal is to complete 2 greens per week and to have no greens out of play on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with only one green closed at a time on Tues, Wed and Thur. A temporary pin will be placed in the fairways while work is progressing on a green.
It takes a tremendous amount of labor, but all work is being done in-house.
Care is taken to make sure each piece of sod is put back exactly where it came from on the green.
