We have expanded and upgraded the drainage at the end of the 3rd fairway. After heavy rains inundated this area in late June we discovered that there were a number of existing drains that had failed or were ineffective. The saturated turf conditions heading into the extreme heat of July proved too much for some of the turf to withstand, and we suffered turf loss in some depressions and areas with little or no surface drainage.
|Clogged drain pipe discovered earlier this summer|
We will continue to monitor the situation and determine if we need to expand or revive other drains in this area, and will continue to aerify and topdress the turf to improve the playing surface, even during periods of wet weather.
