Even with the rain over the last week, the construction crew was able to keep moving forward by installing drainage for the new practice facility and removing sod on two more green complexes. As of yesterday, the construction company had cored out 14 of the 17 green complexes and are anticipating completing the removal of the last green core on Tuesday. By the end of this week, we will have 11 greens seeded with the first 8 in different stages of grow-in anywhere from seedlings to being mowed. In all, the construction project has gone very well and the greens that have been seeded have fully germinated. With continued good weather, the project should be completed by the last week in July.
For those of you who haven’t been onsite this week, we have started the process of rebuilding #14 tee. With the disturbance around #13 green complex incorporating the bunker and surrounds it gave the opportunity while the construction company was at that location to finish them both together. The tee was old, uneven, and not aimed down the middle of the fairway.
