July 13 update

Total Golf worked all weekend to get the range area grassed and completed. There was a couple day delay with rains from T.S. Elsa flooded the sod farm and delayed harvesting.  We are now in the “grow in” stage of the renovation. In the next 6 to 8 weeks, the grass will go from 1 inch of sod or sprigs to being cut below .100 of inch for the greens and ready to roll!  Time is the biggest factor outside of sunlight, water, nutrients, sand and mowers to achieve our desired goal of a putting green/teeing surface.  The new turf has to root and become mature enough to withstand practice shots and foot traffic for putting.  So please stay off the work area as the turf is being kept wet and damage could occur.  #1 Greenside bunkers were renovated and are finished as well.  The bunkers are ground under repair and please drop out of the area no closer to the hole.  The bunker slopes are loose as the sod is being established.  Periodic watering everyday is being performed to help with establishment of the turf. 

We are now awaiting the range net company to install netting at the east side of tee and eastern side of range along #9.  Material has been ordered and in 2021 fashion is backordered.  The range mat will be installed the first week of August along with a paver path and concrete repairs.  Always weather dependent, I still believe the range should be open at the end of August assuming the netting will be delivered and installed. Thank you for your patience in allowing the turf to mature! 

See you on the course!

June 21 Range update

Good Afternoon!

This week the range tee will continue to be lowered about a foot and shaped toward the center of range.  The range tee is being moved back 10 yards toward parking and a new mat will be at the back of the tee.  The putting green is now lowered and shaped.  The construction crew will tie in the putting green area to the new range mat pad/tee area. 

Last week the old range mat was removed and will be repurposed into an artificial sod stacked bunker westside of chipping green.  We are also removing sand from #1 greenside bunkers today to use on the targets in the range.  #1 greenside bunkers will be ground under repair for the next 4 weeks until repaired and resodded.  We also repurposed some of the palm trees that were along the range tee. They were relocated near the garden room area.  A net and additional landscape will be added to the east side of range tee and extended in range 100 ft to help protect errant practice shots from windows and golfers.  We have generated quite a bit of fill that will also be used to help enhance drainage and reshaping the practice area.

See you on the course!
