Almost Done

Even with the extra equipment and manpower the prep work between holes #2 and #10 was not quite completed by Thursday night.

Irrigation Installation
Irrigation installation was completed. The two small areas along the left side of the cart path need to be finished. Once the weather clears this work should be done in a half a days time.

Second Day Update on #2 and #10 Rough Conversion

Starting on the upper right hand side of the above map, a path made from Porous Pave (Porous Pave) will be installed to facilitate cart traffic between the two holes. Porous Pave was chosen so we would not have an unsightly concrete path. Instead this brown material will be used to better blend into the surrounds. Starting at this path and going the entire way between the two holes will be primary rough until the arrow noting the end point.

Along the left side of the cart path the secondary rough around the tree near where carts exit the fairway will become primary rough.

Finally, the 15 foot wide strip of secondary rough along the cart path to the right of the green will be converted to primary rough.

#2 and #10 Rough Conversion

Started what should be a quick project today. The goal is to convert what was the secondary rough between holes #2 and #10 to primary rough. This will make the area much more playable and hopefully speed up play. Prep should take 3-4 days and sodding with Turf Type Tall Fescue another 2-3 days.

Total Turf Golf Services (Total Turf Golf Services) from Huntingdon Valley, PA is doing the prep work.

Next step will be to run a Rock Hound over this area to remove additional debris.

At the end of the day a lot got done.

Will follow-up Wednesday with an update on progress and a map of the actual area we are converting to primary rough.
