THE PLAYERS Stadium: Drainage Additions

This month on THE PLAYERS Stadium Course, the agronomy team began repairs on drainage lines throughout the course. The main focus this week was an existing drain line on number 6 that was no longer functioning properly. The pipe became clogged over the years with silt and debris. To fix this problem, the team removed all of the existing pipe and drainage basins, and replaced it with all new 6", double wall, non-corrugated pipe, as well as new basins. Another project began early this week on number one, and will be completed by the end of the week. These additions and repairs will continue throughout the next few months to ensure the best possible playing conditions for the 2015 PLAYERS.

The agronomy team is attaching drainage tile to a basin along the cart path.
