Week 9 and 10 Recap

My apologies in not getting my blog page updated for you. I was part of a contingent from DMGCC that attended the Solheim Cup in Germany. I have to show you one photo from the closing ceremonies, this is when the Iowa Flag was raised and DMGCC was recognized as the host for the 2017 Solheim Cup. We have a lot to do between now and then but we will do our best to make you proud.

Well rain has plagued the project once again. Over the last 2 weeks several days were lost due to some very wet conditions. However irrigation is always the part of the project that can work because they are not always in the dirt/mud. The new 10” main line under the creek on #1 South was bored in and they are finishing that connection today. Irrigation was also finished on #5 and #4 green sites.
Our goal right now is to get the greens built and seeded. Here is a photo of #5. It was sodded around and seeded last Friday. Looks like germination is doing well.

We are frantically working on #4 green site. We finished all of the bunkers around the green yesterday and LUI is sodding around them today. Our staff is laying sod on the approach and we will be seeding the green later today. Hopefully we can get a couple of more semi loads of sod in this afternoon.

Also the bridge building crew started last Wednesday. We have 2 new bridges be built. One of them is on #2 and it is about 75% completed and the other will be on #17.

LUI has a crew working on the subgrade of #7 green and there is a shaper working on shaping the grades on #18 green.
