As of this Update, work is progressing on many components for multiple holes, as shown in the pictures below (click on any pic to enlarge)
Sod (celebration Bermuda sod) being added to tee bank on #1.
We sod all slopes around each Tee and Green complex to prevent erosion during grow-in period
New lowered tee on #5 also back of tee is raised adding tiered effect
This is Billy our laser tee leveling expert, doing his work on LADIES tee on #6
LADIES tee box on #1 already laser leveled and ready to sod the slopes!
Crew installing 6" perforated pipeline in ground for drainage.
As an FYI during this project we will install nearly 3/4 of a mile of underground drainage in the greens and fairways of Island Dunes CC.
Sod going down on #1 tee and #7 tee, see special note on sod at the end of this post
New tee box on #4, note that tee is now tiered, also the back tee was eliminated due to a shade problem and could not grow grass on it!
Special Note on SOD
After being hit with over 20 inches of rain in late May, June has brought some relief and allowed us to complete a good number of scheduled deliverables. That has not helped our local sod suppliers however who are still under water, forcing us to go elsewhere for sod at a further distance and increased cost. These costs are being controlled as much as possible despite the effects of Mother Nature on this project.
