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 Update 1-29-2016

On January 22nd and 23rd, we received +/- 12" of snow. Despite the weather, our contractor, Landscapes Unlimited, has been working on the new tee boxes on holes 3 and 6.

Rough shaping the tee pad on #6

Once rough-shaped, the architect approves the elevations

If the elevations are approved, the tee top is then fine-graded to drain at 1.5% in one or two directions

The floors are graded with a box blade that is controlled by a laser. 

After the sub-floor is properly graded, drainage is installed. 

Our next post will focus on the addition of the tee mix and the final grade prior to sod or seed.
