The second part of our off-season course improvement project is underway! By the start of the golf season, all 41 bunkers will have received new drainage, new edges, and new snow-white sand. Here's a bit of a sneak peek at the process and progress.
The first shot below is a picture of our bunker on
hole #13 before any renovations. After years of use, the existing drainage was
clearly clogged and the sand had become compacted. Excavators were brought in
to remove all existing sand and drainage. Trenches were cut in and through at a
decline for new perforated pipe. That pipe would then be buried with gravel
which acts as a filter keeping as much sand out of the pipes as possible.
New edges were cut and it was time to add the sand.
One down, 40 to go! Be sure to keep checking here for progress updates or come play and see for yourself!
