Revitalization Update June 3rd, 2024

Here’s another update from the Greens & Grounds Committee.  Work on the left side bunker and area surrounding the green on hole #2 was recently completed as follows –

  • New bunker re-shaped, drainage and sand installed.

  • Back bunker removed and sodded.

  • The new collection area on the right side had bent grass sod installed.

  • The bunker and surrounding area will be played as Ground Under Repair (GUR)* until the sand is compacted, and sod takes root.  This area should be open for play within the next couple of weeks.

The Precision Golf crew has transitioning to the bunker on the left side of hole #6 as follows –

  • The whole construction area is roped off and should be played as Ground Under Repair. *

Here are some additional notes and updates –

  • Craig’s team will be working on hole #4 tee.  The hole will remain open.

  • The Naturalized Area on the right side of holes #6 & #8 has been marked off with a white line and should be played as Ground Under Repair*.  You may retrieve your ball but do not play from this area to allow the Fescue that has been planted to take root.  This area will be mowed down later in the season to allow us to kill off the annual rye grass used as a protective layer for the fine Fescue.

  • The area beyond hole #7 green has been seeded and should be played as Ground Under Repair* until we can get the seed to germinate and get our regular rough to grow in this area.

  • Final tree work and stump grinding then grading and seeding of the area near Holes #8 & #13 tees will commence this week.   This area should be played as Ground Under Repair*.

  • All areas that are roped off or marked by a white line are Ground Under Repair*.  You may retrieve your golf ball, but you may not play out of these areas.

  • All other Naturalized Areas should be played as it lies or (if ball is lost) under penalty of one stroke, take two club-lengths from the spot of where the ball last crossed the margin of the natural area. Click Here CCH Golf and Greens Blog Post on Natural Area

  • Do not drive a cart into any of the Naturalized Areas.

  A few other reminders –

  • Replace and repair divots with sand that has been supplied on all golf carts.

  • Repair ball marks on greens (repair yours and one other)

  • Place broken tees in the receptacles on many of the tees.

*Ground Under Repair - take free relief, you must find the nearest point of complete relief (stance) from the ground under repair and drop your original ball or another ball from knee-height away from the ground under repair and within one club-length of that point not nearer the hole.
