Wall Restoration

The recent above normal temperatures for the month of January have allowed the Grounds Staff to move forward with a couple key projects across the golf course including tee improvements on #15 and the wall restoration on #6.

The wall restoration project has progressed slowly with success thus far. Recently, the water was contained further to allow for the concrete footer to be poured. In order to capture the water and dry the area where the footer was to be placed, a series of sand bags and plastic were utilized to form a levee. The sand bags were used as the form and provided adequate structure for concrete. The sand bags will be removed at the end of the project. Damage was limited from the concrete truck with the use of plywood. The Stone Mason, Joe Channey has begun placing the stones to form the wall. We will continue to update the membership through the process.

Happy New Year!
