July 19, 2017

The pace continues to stay steady.  Grassing on the first 6 holes is complete and beginning to green up.  Sodding around the next 4 greens began today with 3 & 5 done.  In the morning #4 fairway will be sprigged and sodding will continue around the 6th and 15th greens.  Mowing of areas sodded earlier has already begun.  Greens will be rolled in the morning and mowing will begin on Monday.  It is looking more and more like a golf course daily.  I am having a hard time remembering what the old golf course looked like.  For those who are still here you will see a lot water being put on the holes that are grassed.  I know this may seem extreme but it is extremely important to keep the sprigs wet until rooting has begun.  At which time watering will slow down allowing the holes to dry up and we can start doing little things on these holes, like fixing areas that have washed out with the heavy rainfall.  We will get there and it will be great.  Looking forward to seeing people playing the course again.
