What to Expect With Upcoming Bunker Construction

We are only a couple of weeks away from beginning bunker construction on the golf course. Next week, Architect Spencer Holt, will begin marking bunker placement in red paint. Our Director of Grounds, Brian Curtis will spray these areas in order to kill that turf. This process will eliminate the amount of living plant matter that will need to be hauled off, thus reducing costs. 

It will be reasonable for you to be prepared for hole closures on some days while construction is underway. As soon as we have more details from Sanders Golf regarding timing, we will communicate that so you are aware and know what to expect. 

Because of the design of the golf course, Sanders will be mobilizing from a central area around the Clubhouse. We are still working on these details with the understanding that we have overlapping projects and contractors, so coordinating scheduling will be impactful to the overall progress of our Enduring Legacy Project. 

We are expecting a visit from Sanders Golf next week to help us finalize practice facility plans and tighten up project details. Now that we are to this stage, we expect this process to begin to move quickly and progress that you can see, to be right around the corner. Exciting!

Lighting Improvements

Outdoor lighting improvements have been made this week with the installation of light poles around the parking lot areas. A few of the lights will remain non-functional until we close the pool, and can disrupt that area. We will need to re-locate a light near the baby pool as well as pull wires to that location.

Bollard lights have successfully been installed both in front and behind the clubhouse for additional lighting near the sidewalks and cart path.

Our lamp posts in the circle are going to take a bit longer. We are also still waiting on fixtures for the exterior clubhouse and memorial garden.

Tennis Improvements

Today, we received a shipping notification for our new benches and tables for the Tennis Court viewing area. We are continuing to be plagued with excessive shipping times, so we know this has been quite a wait. We are really looking forward to seeing things start to come together!
