Renovation Update #4

We have grass and sand!  The surrounds on #12 were sodded and sand was added to the bunkers. We also planted the 12th green with aerator cores and seed on Monday afternoon.  The results are impressive.  Number 12 is starting to look like a golf hole again and #11 will not be far behind.  We have had many positive responses from golfers so far.  The new bunker shapes look great and really suit the golf course.  A few members have commented on the front bunker on #12 and how it looks like a tough shot to carry it.  I lasered the yardage and found that to carry the front bunker from the gold permanent marker requires a shot of 73 yards.  For comparison, it is 81 yards to carry the pond on #3 from the gold permanent marker.

It's been a busy couple of weeks but it's great to see some finished product.
