Dye's Valley HUB - Day 12

Some bad weather this morning slowed progress slightly at the Hub project.  We had hoped to have the drainage pipe and gravel layer installed in the putting green but the wet conditions set this back a day.  More drainage mainlines were added and conditions improved enough so the greens mix for the chipping green could be added. 

The chipping green will require close to 300 tons of greens mix.  

 The greens mix is a mixture of sand and peat moss that meets the recommendations set by the USGA with regards to building a green.  

 The greens mix will be 12" deep and will mirror the sub-grade of the greens bowl to keep the integrity of the green true.
