Tuesday from the PGA Championships

Today was a great day. We finally got a day with no rain and actually had some good drying conditions.

The setup was was pretty straightforward for both shifts today with double mowing and rolling. It's been cool to see some of the bigger named players being very complimentary of the golf course on social media.

One neat thing I noticed today was some of the features of the golf course being similar to features of Mr. Dye's design at Des Moines Golf and Country Club.

There are a lot of areas around bunkers that have vertical timbers similar to what we have around the Starter Practice green. Some of the more "normal" bunkers are very similar in design to our new bunkers on the north course.

As I've said before the course is in awesome shape and some of the views here are absolutely amazing.
