Next week we will begin work on drainage for #7 and #2 green and also reworking of the front of #2 green. After that we only have #9 green drainage and some rework to complete before winter sets in!
|Trenching of the drain lines - rocks and clay are very common component of the push-up greens. Plywood is used to protect the green surface. This is a very labor intensive project.|
|It is important to keep the sod organized so that it goes back in the exact same spot and the exact same way so that the trench lines are not visible in years to come.|
|The soil (mix) that is put back into the greens comes from Wisconsin, 25 tons at a time. We will use between 50 and 100 tons of material per green. The material handler helps in transporting the mix from the shop to the course.|
