Phase 4, Week 16 1/2 Renovation Project Update

This looks like the end of the line for Phase 4 in 2016. Tomorrow morning the forecasted temperatures look to be in the low teens. This will freeze up everything and bring work to a halt. LUI worked all weekend once again to install drainage and bunker sand. Their goal by the end of today is to have all of the drainage installed in all areas. They should be able to finish this. They will have 6 bunker left to install the sand and sod in the spring. Almost made it in 2016!

It has been a great fall to complete as much of the project as we could. It has been a pleasure to work with Big Al Van Meeteren and his team from Landscapes Unlimited. Hopefully we now get snow cover on our turf to protect it over the winter time. In the spring they should be able to finish the bunkers and their punch list in 2 weeks.

Thank you for following along on the blog page. I will try to start updating you once again on golf course maintenance items and Solheim Cup progress as we move through 2017. Have a Happy Holiday season.
