Today marks day #5 of the 2021 Granite Bay Golf Club renovation project and things are really starting to get cooking. Two of Diamond Golf's best shapers have arrived at GBGC and are getting up to speed. We were unable to locate any of the bentgrass sod variety we wanted for the short game green so we will be seeding it next week as well as starting the shaping on the new Tilley's green and #9.
Unfortunately access to the golf course from the surrounding neighborhoods will be restricted during construction and turf grow-in. Club Corp and Diamond International have had too many safety related incidents and near miss catastrophes that has made this policy non-negotiable. Good news is Kevin Marshall will be setting up guided tours of the construction zones in the very near future. Communication on those tours will be forthcoming.
More pictures below and updates to come next week. Thanks as always for your support and patience.
