Dye's Valley Drainage Additions

For the past two months on the Dye's Valley, we have put major focus on adding new drainage additions throughout the golf course in many water holding areas. These areas are #1, #8, #10 & #12 fairways. We also have plans to add drainage on number 14 and 16 tee boxes along with number 5 cartpath.

Our reasoning behind installing these drainage features is to alleviate water-logging, ultimately enhancing playability. After a heavy rain these are the most problematic areas with standing water, increased disease, and potential golf ball plugging. By installing these additions we hope to improve our turfgrass health along with the playbility aspect.

We plan to keep moving forward here at TPC Sawgrass, doing what ever it takes to create the best playing surfaces and making sure our guests have the best experience possible.
