Projects this week

We are done with greens drainage, but the projects continue.  No greens will be closed for the remainder of this season.  This week we will be replacing the sod around #15 and #5 green, leveling old drain lines in fairways and adding some some drainage to the approaches of #3, #5 and #16.  If the predicted rains arrive this schedule will change.

New seed coming up in the rough.  By next spring the thin areas should completely recover.
 
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  Bald Cyprus are one of a few conifers that drop their needles creating a nice pine scent around the trees.

#16 after the improvements to the hole which included; back bunker removed, right and left bunkers reduced, run-off area added to the front left, and fairways widened on the left.  We also added drainage to this green and re-sodded the entire green surround.  All work was done in-house and completed in about one week.
