Next week we will start the 2019 phase of our turf conversion so want to provide a update for interested members. I'll start by apologizing for unexpected closure to hole #17 again today, 7/25/19. We are doing some vertical mowing work on #17 (see below pictures) that we thought would wrap up before anyone got there. Unfortunately that was not the case so we had to close the hole until 1:30 PM at which time it will re-open to both cart traffic and play through Sunday 7/28/19. After that it will be closed for turf renovation until it is ready to be opened.

Below are some pictures of the work we are doing prior to the contractors arrival this coming Monday 7/29/19. We'll have a better timeline when they arrive and we have a chance strategize. As promised we'll share dates and times of processes that might be of interest to our members through this course update.

Tuesday 7/30/19 - Move Sand Cap Sand onto #17. Prepare #17 for Pulverization.
Member play will be on holes 1-15 on this day, skipping #16, #17, #18 so this work can be completed uninterrupted. Hole HDCP on #16 is 6 so players with HDCP's 6 & above score a bogey, 5 & below a par. Hole HDCP #18 is 8 so player HDCP's 8 & above score a bogey, 7 & below a par.
Wednesday 7/31/19 - Complete Irrigation Modifications on #17.
Thursday 8/2/19 - Pulverization #17. Tentative
