Welcome to my blog!
It is my intention to give the readers a better understanding of what we do to maintain The Farms Country Club's 18 hole championship golf course and grounds.

Drainage Project #12 Green

We continue to tackle some problem areas on the course. There is a small area on the back of twelve green that never drains and the turf quality always suffers. We decided to spend time installing some drainage using leftover supplies from previous projects. Solve the problem instead of constantly "band-aiding" the area. Once the topmix has settled we will install sod we strip from our nursery.
Dig the hole.
Fix irrigation heads in conjunction with drainage.
Install pipe and pea stone.
Fill with sand.
Water heavily to aid compaction.
Water flowing from outlet.
