Road Boring

Today we began the first of the eight rode bores that will take place with the irrigation renovation project. The bores are being done at all of the development road crossings that occur between the golf holes.

The bores will replace open cut trenching through the roads, which is far less invasive and more structurally sound as far as pipe encasement. The most difficult bore we will occur at the crossing from #16 green over to #17 tees. The bore itself will be over 300 feet long with a depth of more than 25 feet. Lets hope we do not encounter any rock during this one.
