The past few weeks have been very busy in the Golf School short game area out on the North course. If you are familiar with the North course, the short game area is that “weird” opening out by 7, 11, and 12 North. It has always contained a fairly decent green complex, but it has always been overgrown, unsightly, and never really contained a playable bunker. Well, this year we have made a commitment to making it a playable and pleasing short game facility. Our project manager, Justin Parker, started by leveling and grading most of the soil and bare areas. This project needs to happen in three stages. First, grading needs to take place and prepare it for hydro-seed.
Second, he started digging a bunker next to the green and putting in proper drainage and liner.
The last thing to complete the second stage is finish grading and shaping the bunker and get it ready to sand. Hydro-seed has been scheduled for the week of April 9th. As the project nears completion more pictures will be posted. See you on the course!
