Since the announcement was made that the irrigation system is going to be replaced, I have heard a lot of misinformation spreading around the membership. The item I keep hearing is the fact that we are going to close the entire golf course during the irrigation renovation. This is completely untrue! In fact we will be doing everything possible to minimize the disturbance to the membership during this process.

There will be times that one or two holes might be closed at any given time, but that would be the extent of any closures. The mainline installation will be taking place in the rough directly adjacent to the fairway line and for the most part will be out of play. The lateral installation will go directly through the fairways and this will likely be the times that any given hole or holes are closed.

Keep in mind this is an enormous project and there will be times of disruption, but the short term pain that is caused will be worth it in the long run when the installation is complete.
