Geen Construction Begins

Monday re-construction of #10 and #13 green began.  After the sod was removed, the green was leveled slightly with the dozer. The next step was to install the geo-grid.  This material is designed to spread the weight of the green and help it to float on the peat. 

We have also started renovating the rough. This includes aerifing, seeding, dragging and fertilizing. We have also started phase 2 of the tee rebuilding. And as if that is not enough, we are adding some drainage to areas in need. We also re-slit seeded any week spots in fairways yesterday. This week we will be hauling material to #13/10 greens, continue work on the tees, drainage and seeding rough. We are sorry for any inconvenience, but the sooner we can get the work done, the quicker it will heal as we are in the prime time for seeding.

2nd phase of rebuilding the tees has begun

Restoration of the rough has also started.  Now that we are in the seeding window and the weather is good, we have also begun this process.
