Fall Projects

Last fall the construction of the new practice facility as well as the addition of three bunkers and three tees consumed our time as a staff.  This fall we are construction free, but not project free.  There's always detail work that needs to be accomplished.  One of the largest projects we undertook during the past two weeks was the rebuilding of various bunker faces in need of repair.

10" of sand had accumulated on the face of this bunker on the first hole.  That's 1" of sand for every year since the restoration
 The bunker face on #1 was brought back to the original contours

The finished product on #5

Over time bunker faces begin to show the stress of daily wear and tear and repair work is required.  Damaged turf on bunker faces on holes 1, 5, 7, 12, 13 and 16 has been stripped and sodded.  Sodded areas have been painted Ground Under Repair and are roped off.  Please stay off of these areas until the ropes are removed.
