Golf Course Project Update

Project Update - May 7


Brian Ross, our shaper, was able to cut out the new bunkers on 2 and 9 over the weekend. Moving us one step closer to completing these holes.

Progress on Monday was delayed due to an irrigation blowout on hole number 5 by the green. Unfortunately, the leak caused major erosion in the area. After examination, it has been decided that the best option for repairing this area will be to remove the turf, regrade and install new sod. We will time this activity sometime over the next two weeks for when we will be receiving a sod delivery.

Tuesday was an exceptionally busy day. Taking advantage of the closed day, we were able to do a small-hole aerification on greens, and apply fertilizer across the entire golf course. Having altered our approach to aerification last year, we are planning to do many small-hole aerifications versus a few aggressive aerifications. When you do the math, we can be as effective with several minimally invasive aerifications as we can with a few aggressive ones. While more frequent, the small-hole procedure has minimal effects on playability compared to the large holes which usually require a few weeks for the greens to heal. The goal is to provide great putting conditions for as many days out of the year as possible without sacrificing turf health. 

New irrigation was installed around #7 green today and drainage was installed in the new bunker on #2. The left greenside bunker on #16 began to take shape. We will continue drainage work on #9 on Wednesday and our first loads of sod are scheduled to arrive later this week.
