The staff installed the forms on Friday for the concrete pads to smoothly connect the new bridges with the cart paths.
There will be 6 pads poured on Monday on holes 1 & 10.

14 Bridge Rot

The bridge on 14 is being removed today and it is in much worse shape than anticipated.  I shouldn’t be surprised seeing how it sits in all that shade and never has a chance to dry out.

Getting it Done

With Fred approaching it was important for us to get mowed out today.  To accomplish this we had all mowers out cutting fairways.

Fresh Cutting Units

With all the summer maintenance happening the fairways mowers are in desperate need of a fresh grind.  With all the scalping, aerification and topdressing the cutting until took a beating.  The attached video shows the difference between dull cutting units and freshly ground units.  The mechanics have performed the work on 2 of the fairway mowers and have started working on the 3rd.  The length of grass is not helping with the quality of cut but with 6” of rain in 8 days it is extremely wet throughout the golf course.  Hopefully Tropical Storm Fred doesn’t bring us too much rainfall.

Soon to be Fred

It seem that soon to be Tropical Storm Fred will be making a visit to South Florida over the weekend.  Very wet conditions throughout the golf course have slowed summer cultural practices yet to be completed.  The property has received 5.71 inches of rain in the past 7 days and we are hopeful that areas throughout the course dry up as we get into next week.  In the meantime staff are working on the little things throughout the course.

#10 Brides

Both bridges on the 10th hole will be completed by Monday end of day.  They will then be moving onto the 4th hole to complete the bridge.  That bridge should take approximately 1 week to complete.

Unwanted Rainfall

Well this storm has put a halt to the maintenance scheduled for the time being.  Hopefully it passes quickly and we can get back at it.
