It has been a productive week for the turf department with the completion of the curb work. On Tuesday we began backfilling and grading around the new curbs in preparation for sod, and yesterday the sodding was completed. We also finished sodding bluegrass around the new cart paths on #9, 11 and repairs to edges of the paths on #2, 13 and #12. The remaining fairway spots on #11 were sodded with bentgrass, so please play all the above noted areas as ground under repair and obey the signs and ropes for cart traffic.
As I mentioned last week, we were going to start removing bunker boards on the new bunkers and put them back into play. We have been able to complete all of #10 and all the bunkers except the right fairway of #8, so these are now in back in play. #4 and #6 will be finished over the next week; when the bunker boards are removed from the edges they will be open for play.
