17th Hole Improvements

As part of the Club’s Capital Improvement Plan for 2018, our team renovated the bunkers on the penultimate hole of the golf course. 

We began this project on October 30th and was besieged by all types of weather. Even a bout of snow did not deter our team!

The architect’s plan, seen below, involved expanding the left hand fairway bunker “F,” while removing the first bunker “E” on the right side of the fairway. With the bunker removed, our staff leveled a section of the fairway to incorporate a flat deck teeing ground.

Although not part of the original Cap Ex request, our team was able to create the second fairway bunker depicted above as letter “G” due to savings we experienced on other projects we accomplished earlier in the year. 

The day before Thanksgiving, our team installed the drainage system for the left hand bunker, seen above.

In the picture above is Matt Medina, contemplating the orange line for the bunker edge. 

If you click on the picture above, you will be able to zoom in and see the bunkers from the perspective of the back tees. While constructing the newly positioned bunker on the right, it was important to have sand “flashed” from all the teeing grounds to identify the hazard.
