We developed this blog to provide golf course maintenance information to our members. From projects, small and large, to updates on course conditions, we want to provide as much information as possible. Although we hope this blog answers all of the pertinent questions regarding our operation, we always welcome more personalized dialogue. If you have questions beyond the information found on this blog, feel free to contact our golf course superintendent, Trevor Hedgepeth.

Winter Projects Are Wrapping Up!!

The golf course is starting to green up and all of our winter projects are coming to a close. The next series of posts will help bring everyone up to speed on our improvements throughout the winter.

14 Tee Expansion

We finished up the much needed expansion of the teeing surfaces on number 14 at the end of January. As you can see from the above photo, previously the narrow tee boxes caused for divot laced areas in our most used sections of the tees. The old complex had just two tees, in which the back tee played host to the black and gold markers, and the forward tee had the remaining three sets.

The new complex has created three separate surfaces. The back tee is a touch larger in width, the middle tee is almost double the previous width and the forward tees will now be separated up front. This additional space will aid in divot recovery and options for tee placement throughout the season.

13 Tee Walk

Last week, we completed our project on the thirteenth hole to help aid the walk between the blue and white tees when traveling to the fairway. For weeks, loads of dirt were hauled to the section to subtle out the severity of the walk between the two tees.



Stay tuned, as we will be updating our blog in the upcoming days.
