Drainage on 11

Last week drainage pipe was installed on hole 11 approach. This area can become quite saturated with large amounts of rainfall. Drainage lines were constructed to relieve this problem. The pictures illustrate the process of marking the area where the sod was cut, digging the trench where perforated pipe was laid, back-filling with sand, and finally relaying the sod and topdressing with green sand. Keeping the course in good playability is an important endeavor.
