North Course Update

Lots of activity as we enter the Red Zone ... we just need to punch it in as we approach October.

The seawall is complete
Irrigation on #15 is complete; we begin drainage and sand capping next week; still 21 days from completion
1, 10, 2 & 4 tee complexes will be sodded by next Monday.
The bunkers on 1, 5, 3, & 11 are complete
The fairway expansions on 5 & 11 are complete
The tees seeded 2 weeks ago look good: 5, 11, 12, 17, 18.
13 tee and 15 tee are slow and we may chose to sod these two

The completed tee complexes and bunkers look wonderful and we're excited for you to enjoy the course next year. Right now my best appraisal for opening is May 15th, weather depending. If we can open earlier we will.

  1. The original plan was for the North course to be open for play in early April. You note above May 15th. Are we that far behind schedule because of rain?

  2. We're hoping for April. What I should have said is "spring" whenever that may be. The pond issues and storms have impacted us. The most important thing is to provide a quality product to the members.
