Best Laid Plans Gone Awry---Green #9
Rebirth of #3 Green The removed material was stockpiled in the parking lot to be used in other projects at a later date.
The removal of the damaged green and the replacement of the new greens mix was done by Mitch and Bill in only one day.
Champion Ultradwarf bermudagrass sod on it. The sod arrived on Wednesday and early on Thursday morning we got started by first placing a ring of sod around the perimeter of the green and then pulling a rope across the middle of the green so we could have a good first line and off we went.
Unfortunately this is the last project, and last picture I took, of one of our agronomy staff members Barry Webb. Barry passed away unexpectedly on Memorial Day. Rest in peace Barry. You are very much missed.
The Agronomy Staff did a great job on this project and we will continue to work to improve the golf course with other projects such as sodding, tee and approach aerification, and adding sand to bunkers will be carried out throughout the remainder of the summer.
