Another Busy Project Season Ahead

Autumn signals the change in seasons as well as the direction of the grounds shifts from everyday maintence to upgrades and enhancements across the property. The major project of the 2015 season is the cart path renovation that will take place on Holes 1,2,7,8 and 18.

Cart Path Enhancement Map

The Grounds staff will be involved with the final shaping, sodding and seeding of the cart path edges. During this project we will continue to add drianage in many areas to eliminate saw cutting of the paths in the future. The aspalt crews will be finished in late October and our staff will continue to into early November placing the finishing touches on the work. During this project our goal is not to close holes however, it may be necessary to close or alter teeing locations to insure the safety of the staff, members and contractor. Please obey the signs and ropes and check with the Proshop and Twitter for the latest on the project.
