I am excited to introduce you to the “West Course Bunker Renovation” website. We have been planning this project for approximately one year and we are now underway. Eric and I have worked closely with the Fazio Group, Greens and Grounds Committee, as well as the Board of Directors, to develop a the appropriate plan with the least impact on member play. Only two holes will be closed at a time so members will have the opportunity to continue playing a 16 hole course.
The project scope is inclusive of greenside and fairway bunkers. In addition, we will be replacing the decking on the #18 West bridge and expanding the tee at the Learning Center. During the two hole closure, Eric and his team will be aerifying and verti-cutting the rough, as well as executing a process on the approaches called “Drill and Fill”. This process takes quarter sized tines and pulls cores followed by top dressing sand in the channels. This will firm the playing surfaces and improve drainage.
This site is designed to keep you informed throughout the project. Please visit each week to check photographs and progress updates. We have also offered a section below for you to ask questions about the project.
Please let me know if I can assist you with any additional information.
