13 Renovation Complete

The renovation of the 13th hole is complete, the project took about 5 weeks. The scope of the work included:
  • Renovation of the existing tees
  • Addition of new championship and forward tee
  • Addition of 8 bunkers totaling 8000 square feet
  • Recontouring of fairway
  • Shifting of cart path slightly to the left
  • Just over an acre of sod was laid by HP staff
  • Irrigation modifications including supplemental bunker irrigation
  • Seeding of 2 acres to fine leaf fescues
We are anticipating to open the 13th hole to cart path only Friday, November 8th. This date could change due to saturated soil conditions. While playing this hole please stay off the bunker slopes on and use lift, clean and place when playing from new sod.


Below are a few before and after shots of the 13th hole.

Regards,

Pat O' Brien

Grounds Superintendent
