As the end of August is fast approaching, the 15th hole has matured very well and is getting very close to being ready for play. Nevertheless, the green along with the tees still have a little bit of growing to do before opening so although our projected opening date was Labour Day weekend, the official opening day will be Friday, September 5.
On another good note, the cart paths on #5, 14, and the practice hole were finally able to be paved. That will allow us to seed the tees on 14 and complete the tee complex. On Monday, August 25, the 11th green will be aerified.
The practice area is also coming along very well, with the greens and the fairway completed and growing in nicely. The posts for the hitting structure are scheduled to be installed in the third week of September. Once that is completed they can take measurements to create the netting structure and we can begin finishing off the balance of the project.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
