You may wonder why there is a piece of equipment sitting in the rough on hole #10. Unfortunately, the rough unit sprung a hydraulic line leak, spilling fluid onto the turf. We are awaiting the delivery of a new hose, and it should be fixed tomorrow. In the meantime, the maintenance crew is flushing the area with water to move the hydraulic fluid through the soil. This will minimize the damage and to help the turf recover. It will turn brown for a while, but then the grass will grow back.
The greenside bunker on hole #18 should be completed later today or tomorrow. Regardless, the MGA will play the actual green tomorrow with the bunker marked “Ground Under Repair”. This will end the greenside bunker renovation for this season. We will start again in May with Hole #1 –greenside bunker. Throughout season, the crew will be renovating some out-of-the way fairway bunkers while golf continues.
