#15 drainage revisited

 It was roughly a year ago when we tackled a drainage project on the 15th fairway.  The fairway was extremely wet in the landing area.  To resolve the problem we install a herringbone drainage system in the landing area that would move the excess water into the nearby lake.

The fairway turned out very well.  In the past we had to shut the fairway down to all traffic from the 150 yard marker to the green each winter.

This year we were able to keep the fairway open and mowed all winter.  Some days were pretty wet, but the difference was the rate at which the fairway drained.

Here is a video of the water flowing from the fairway into the lake.

Winter rebuild

 This winter our mechanic, Geoff Adams does quite a bit of work to get us ready for the season.  Here is a look at our rough unit that he has stripped down to the frame to replace worn bushing, hydraulic lines and bearings.  This work is needed to keep our equipment running during the spring when we need it most.

If you have any questions about the winter preparation we do or any comments or concerns about the golf course please feel free to contact me.

Bunker Work

This Spring we did some work to the bunkers.

 The edges have become weak and encroached into the bunkers in many areas.  We removed some of the sod back to the original edge of the bunker.  The removal also gives us a more stable base for our surround mower.


Some of the bunkers needed quite a bit of work to bring them back to the original size.

Although the bunker work might go unnoticed on most bunkers, it will add to the play-ability of the golf course.

If you have any questions or concerns on the golf course please feel free to contact me.
