Things are looking great !

Dear Members,

Everyone wants to know if the course is going to open on time. I know you are all making plans based on the answer, but this thing is now in Mother Nature’s hands, and sometimes she can be in a bad mood! Don’t get me wrong. Our plan is still to open on Nov 1. We have sprigged heavier on the back 9 now, with holes #13-#18 all sodded and sprigged, and greens #10-#12 being sprigged this weekend.  And Gregg is keeping them nourished with bursts of water and fertilizer. But there is still the specter of a late summer storm that could have adverse affects on the opening date. All that said, things look great! The front 9 is greening up, and the back 9 is on its way. As long as we stay on track, we will finish strong next week. I realize that my last communiqué said Aug 11, but after we got behind in a couple areas, it went to August 14. Not a big issue. Once the grass is in, it is 2.5 months of waiting…..

See you Nov 1!

    This is great news. Thank you Mike, Gregg, and the team for keeping the project on track while addressing some long-term drainage issues.
