Practice Green on # 1 Getting Closer to Completion
We're finally nearing the completion of construction on the new practice green complex on #1. Irrigation is in and being adjusted. Bunker floors are being prepared for the Klingstone treatment. This seals the bottom of the bunkers, preventing soil and rocks from contaminating the sand. Klingstone was used successfully on all the bunkers at the Siebel Varsity Training Complex. It is a far superior treatment compared to the old fabric bunker liners.
If all goes well, sod will be installed around the outside of the green on Wednesday 8/15. The green will then be seeded on Thursday. Hopes are to be able to open the green and bunkers in mid-October.
