Phase 4, Week 9 Renovation Project Update

Phase 4, Week 9 Renovation Project Update

Once again this week we were plagued by rain that set the team back 2 days and the cart path crew 3 days. We are now going again and hopefully the forecasted rains for this afternoon stay away.

#9 green cover was removed on Friday and we had some very good germination of the new seed. We will be mowing this green on Monday. As long as soil temperatures are warm we will leave the cover off. Here is a photo of the green from the landing area. I am very pleased with the final product.

We finished installing all of the greens mix on #15. There will be a crew of guys doing the final grading of the green today and tomorrow. The irrigation installation will finish today also. There are 3 bunkers on the green and they too will be finished today. Cart path on this hole was poured on Friday, they will cut the concrete path this morning and crews will do all of the final grading of the hole today. Hopefully if the weather holds we sod and seed this hole on Monday or Tuesday. This is a photo showing the last of the mix going in on #15. The last green in a 4 year project.

Works continues on #12. The big cut on the right side past the lake is almost complete. Bunkers will be shaped in today. We met with officials from the City of West Des Moines yesterday to finalize plans on raising up the sewer manhole and the water meter pit that operates the restroom on #13 tee. All of this falls under City jurisdiction and they have been great to work with.
Once #15 is completed, crews will essentially be working on 3 different items to finish. They are tees, which will be sodded, drainage and rebuilding the remaining bunkers.
