Today (9/7) the Landscapes crew will be working on #5, #12, #17 and the Lower Driving Range Tee.
THE DRIVING RANGE IS CLOSED TODAY!
#5. The Landscapes crew will be gilling the surface of the #5 gold/white tee with scarifier blades to break up compacted soils. All of the work is being done on the surface of the tee. The hole will remain open all day.
#12. They will be finishing up leveling the forward blue tee box. While this is being done the hole will be closed because of the close proximity to the temporary teeing area. They should have this completed rather quickly and #12 will be open by late morning/early afternoon.
#17. Yesterday afternoon the scarification process was completed on the #17 gold and white tees. Today the crew will begin roto tilling the surface and laser leveling. The hole will remain open for play.
Lower Driving Range Tee. The driving range will be closed today. The Landscapes crew will begin to cut and strip the sod from the lower driving range tee surface. The removal of these teeing surfaces will be tedious. Because of the amount of divots and the large amount of sand in the subsurface from top dressing over the years the sod will crumble when it is lifted. A good amount of the work will be done with a skid steer.
Allterrain Excavation will finish up work on the #7 bathroom site today and begin work on the #15 bathroom site. We may be cutting a temporary road from #14 green to #15 tee if they decide to stage the mini excavator in close proximity to the cart path. If this is the case we will have clear and detailed signage in place to route traffic to the #15 teeing area.
