The Legacy project on the North side, minus a few details has come to a close, with excellent results. I would like to thank the entire Grounds team for their persistence, collaboration and execution while maintaining a golf course and their consistent involvement with the South side construction. These projects have challenged us, but the entire team has been instrumental for the success. Thank-you!
A special thanks to Bryan Miller, Horticulturalist and Natalie Selker for their wonderful design work. Bryan, has spent many hours over the last several months planning, coordinating and problem solving to get to this finished product, without Bryan's vision, commitment and dedication the end product would have fallen short. The majority of the plant material is in the ground, the next challenge is to keep it healthy with the stressful summer months just around the corner. Bryan, has also begun planting summer annuals please stop by and say hi and do not hesitate to ask him questions about the plant selections for 2018.
Thank-you, for your comments on the conditioning of the golf course, Assistant Superintendents Dan Lawendowski and Arron Garrett along with the entire Grounds team have done a wonderful job preparing the course with limited input from myself due to the construction.
South Side Update:
Considering that over 6" of rain has fallen during the month of May the entire project has progressed quite well! It may not look like much from the South entrance, but close to 20,000 cubic yards of soil have been moved, creating the outline for many of the facilities. The site is a challenge, with the number of processes occurring simultaneously with multiple contractors and equipment making this space even smaller. Collaboration is key to maintain a safe and efficient work environment.

At the practice facility, hints of green can be seen from the clubhouse as sod has been laid on the new target greens, the chipping green surrounds and practice tee surrounds. The golf course construction contractor Golf Preservations has continued to move well, considering the poor weather conditions. We are hopeful to have the remaining Zoysia sod laid on the teeing surface by the week of June 4th. Seeding of the adjacent areas will occur in the next two weeks.

Thank-you, for your continued patience with the renovations, over the coming weeks we will increase frequency of the updates outlining the progression of the grow-in of the practice facility. As always, if there are any questions please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
