With the completion of our drainage project on 10 approach we quickly moved over to #7 left of the green. This area has been giving us some trouble this past year with the drainage that was originally installed some time ago and became compromised. We have removed the existing drainage and installed new perforated pipe along with drain basins in strategic locations. This should solve the constant wet spot that we have developed. Also in the last photo we are going to trench around the approach and install a catch basin where the water collects on the path. This is a necessary project to keep the cart path from undermining itself due to the constant wet conditions in a low area.
The fairway top dressing has picked up in full swing with the second application, with the verti-quake and the 1298 (solid tine aerifier) we feel that this will improve our playing conditions coupled with the sand that is being applied at the same time. Our first application was very heavy and the second top dressing application has been backed down.
