Golf Course Projects Ongoing
#10 Fairway: Soil has been moved from rough area into the fairway. This material will be graded to fill the depression which will eliminate standing water after flooding occurs.
                                                                         
                                                                              
                                                                             
 




#8 Drainage: This project will collect water in low lying areas on the left edge of the fairway.
A sump pit 20' x 20' 3' deep filled with gravel and have piping connected to the drainage system, will firm up the uneven fairway landing improving playing conditions. 



                                                                             


                                                                              

                                                                              




#7 Tee: Tree and stump removal has been completed. Reshaping to increase tee square footage has turned out well. Plans are to sod the area in the future.

With the mild weather conditions and limited snow cover the maintenance staff also continues with various on course projects. Tree removal to improve turf health and eliminate some of our safety concerns is preformed as time allows.
