Contractors tried to get some sod down this morning but the weather did not cooperate. Another 2.4 inches of rainfall overnight. Attached photo show the dramatic increase in lake levels over the past 3 days. Hoping for better weather over the next couple of days to allow the course dry out.

Golf course renovation is progressing as quickly as possible. Recent weather has prevented grassing of the 17th & 18th hole from taking place. Over 4 inches of rainfall in the past 2 days are creating very wet conditions throughout the golf course. The plan moving forward is to get the grassing completed as quickly as possible. An update on rainfall, January through May the club received 8.66 inches of rain. June through August 24th the club has received 45.58 inches. Be assured that everyone is working as hard as possible to complete this project as quickly as possible.

Work is continuing throughout the golf course. The irrigation company has begun the relocation of the irrigation main line on the 11th hole. An additional isolation valve is being installed so the irrigation around the green can be completed and the green and surround grassed Wednesday of next week. All the remaining greens on the course...10, 11, 17 & 18 will be grassed on Wednesday. The 3rd and 16th fairway/rough will be grassed by the end of day next Friday. Drainage of the practice greens will start in the morning. Once drainage is complete the greens mix will be installed and the final shaping will be completed. Contractors and staff are continuing to work extremely hard to finish the construction by the end of August. It is still an obtainable goal as long as Mother Nature cooperates.

Continuing to make progress throughout the golf course. The final green on the golf course is being constructed, leaving only the putting and chipping greens to build. Today and Friday the tees on 3,4,5,6,15 & 16 are being sprigged. Shaping is still happening on holes not yet grassed. The recent tropical storm that dumped over 7 inches of rain in less than 24 hours did create some headaches throughout the course but more importantly are the 2 days of work lost. Contractor and staff are working hard to gain those days back. The attached photo show the dramatic increase in the level of the lakes. The video is a brief update on the project. Enjoy!
