On May 27, the construction crew started bringing machinery onsite to begin the greens rebuild project, and on May 30 the first shovel went in the ground on #3 green. I am happy to say it is almost at an end. After this week the construction crew will have three greens to finish. With good weather, we should be completed on July 25, then the focus will be on the practice facility the following week.
This week started off slow with all the rain, but the crews pushed hard and we will be sodding around #13, 14, 16 greens and #14 tee today. The drainage and gravel layer have been installed on #12 green and #7 green has been rough graded, leaving only the putting green to complete. The grow-in portion of the project has gone very well. The turf team has begun mowing greens #2, 3 and #4 and today those greens will receive the first 2 tons of topdressing sand. Greens #8 and #9 will hopefully receive their first cuts today with topdressing sand to be applied next week. Overall the project has gone very well.
