The low area in #11 fairway near the ladies tee has been a habitual drainage problem during heavy rains. Yesterday we got started on fixing this issue. We are adding new tile in the low area and tying it will existing tile to the north of #11 fairway-driving range. We will also be adding catch basins in low areas to remove as much surface water as possible. After one day of work, a majority of the trenching is complete and we hope to add tile early next week. This will improve this fairway immensely and have a positive affect on turf quality.
In the coming days we will keep you informed as to when we are going to close the course. Next week's forecast looks warmer around Thanksgiving . . . of course this can change and we will keep you informed on which day we will be closing for the season. We will keep it open as long as weather permits, giving us enough time to put the course to bed for the season. Thanks.
