Wall Collapse

In the last week and a half we have received nearly three feet of snow and from that a large quality of moisture. This abundance of moisture has been both good and bad. The turf and trees could not be happier, but some of the infrastructure on the course is worse for wear.

During the construction of the golf course several of the elevated tees were constructed with Rhyolite retaining walls for support. Unfortunately these walls were constructed without drainage installed behind them. This has led to many of these walls failing over the last several years when soil moisture levels have become saturated.

When these walls have been rebuilt after a failure we have had our contractor install drainage to help alleviate any future problems.
