Spring Projects

Lead Assistant Nick Folk lead a crew this week stripping turf on the dogleg bunker on 7, the two left bunkers on 7 as well as the 160 bunker 16.  As you can see the turf quality on the bunker was quite poor and needed to be replaced.  The poor turf quality was in part do to our efforts to allow the turf on these faces to be thin and wispy.  Since it was decided last fall by the Grounds Committee to abandon the wispy look and go with completely mowed bunkers, there was a need to re-sod these four bunkers.  

Next week our staff, lead by staff Horticulturalist Ryan Hogan, will begin the process of planting the perennial gardens at tennis and the driving range.  Our staff spent this past week prepping the beds and making some minor changes from the construction last fall.  We have a great design, completed by Heidi's Lifestyle Gardens and are excited to see the final product in place.
