Course Update 7/2/2012

Finally, some rain! We revieved just under 1" of rain in the last 24 hours. The rain is by no means a drought buster, but will definately help playing conditions on both courses.

Happy Birthday North Greens! One year ago today - Workers from King Ranch Turfgrass plant the Mini-verde sprigs on our newly renovated greens. We have been happy with progress over the last year, and look forward to continual improvement.

Sprigging number 13 Green one year ago today

We have been very busy since my last post two weeks ago:
North Pump Station: We completed the first phase of our pump station renovation on Wednesday of last week. We now have a much more reliable and efficient way of irrigating the North Course. The new components will not give us more water, but they will allow us to more efficeiently use the water that we have. The first phase conisted of major repairs to the slab in the building, improvements to the wet well, and replacement of the majority of mechanical components in the station. The seccond phase will involve upgrading the remaining electrical controls, and will take place this fall. We did discover some potential problems with the integrity of our wet well during last week's work. If needed, we will make these repairs in the fall as well. Thank you all for your patience during all the work on #9 over the last couple of weeks. Check out the pictures below showing some of the work.
