The next project involved renovating the entry way to the clubhouse. The first step involved removal of the existing turf. The area around the entry way struggled to grow due to the high periods of shade. Upon removal of the grass, fresh top soil was added before the new sod was installed. The pictures below illustrate the process.
The next project involved the waste bunkers on #15. The bunkers on #15 have been an eyesore to the agronomy team throughout the years. The bunkers receive very little to no play throughout the season. When we receive high amounts of rainfall, they fall at the bottom of the restoration list. When they were constructed, they were built without liners, which in turn, allows weeds and grasses to thrive in the sand without having a barrier between the sand and dirt. Long story short, we came to the conclusion that we would best served to turn these bunkers into native fescue. The process began with the removal of sand in the bunkers. The sand was then used on the waste bunkers on 14 that were in need of sand.
Thanks for reading. Have a Merry Christmas, a happy New Year, and we will see you in 2015.
