July 12, 2017
Work throughout the golf course continues at a rapid pace. On Tuesday we met a milestone....tee, fairway and rough sprigging has begun. At the end of the day today 3 holes 12, 13 & 14 have been completely grassed with the exception of the greens. The greens on the first 6 holes...1, 2, 9, 12, 13 & 14 will be sprigged on Thursday, yet another milestone in the project. While the greens are being sprigged the sodding contractor will begin putting sod down around #1 tee complex and waste bunker. The sprigging on hole 1 is scheduled to take place Friday with the 2nd hole likely to follow on Saturday. If all goes well 5 holes will be completely grassed by the end of day Saturday. Greens continue to be built along with bunkers and fairway shaping. Drainage basins are being added on almost every hole to help with the drainage. The irrigation contractor has begun the work on the next 6 greens. Asphalt was installed today on holes 3 with 4 and 16 to follow over the next couple of days. Mowing around the greens will likely begin next week after the tif-eagle sprigs have had a chance to root growth. It is getting to look more and more like a golf course again daily.
