Phase 4, Week 15 Renovation Project Update

Phase 4, Week 15 Renovation Project Update

After last week’s weather I did not think I would be here writing another blog post on construction this season. I was proven wrong and here is this week’s short update.

Rain once again came in the middle of the week. All of the LUI crew are feverishly working on installing the drainage and building new bunkers on the 11th hole. They had to install 2 long tile lines from the pond on #12 to the bunker complexes. Once these were installed then it was all hands on deck building the bunkers on #11 green and fairway. Once the new sand is in you want to install the sod around it to protect it from contamination. If you cannot install the sod then the only way to protect it is to cover the sand or the surrounding areas with plastic to prevent movement of unwanted material. When you come in the front drive and see a lot of plastic you will understand why it is there. We hopefully will be able to have Stensland Sodding back in to install some more sod but the forecasted rain does not sound good this afternoon.

The drainage crews will now move to the 16th hole where they have 3 drainage lines to install and then that part of the project will be completed and behind us.

I will update you later in the week if they are able to continue, I am hopeful but the weather forecast does not sound good. With December almost upon us it might be the end of our construction season
