Day Three

Another great day of work took place on the course today. The final five greens and approaches had the sod stripped from them, This will allow us to complete all of the soil amendments to be added and rototilling to take place at these greens complexes.

Greens 1-8 and 10 have all been floated once and several have been floated several times. Each time the green is floated the contours become more defined and will replicate those found prior to the renovation work.

Verti-cutting was accomplished on two more fairways today getting us through the first five holes. This process will not take place tomorrow due to a scheduled fairway herbicide application to control the Poa Annua. On Friday weather permitting verti-cutting will resume.

Work on nine green continues at a slower pace than I would like due to irrigation components that need to be moved before and dirt can be moved in a few areas. Over the next few days the pace should pick up and the new green will be taking shape.
