Before and After Photos

The desired look to our newly seeded native areas will take a long time to properly mature. Even so, The before and after photos of the railroad trestle on our Tillinghast golf course show a much improved area. Can you imagine how beautiful the finished look will be next season with the golden fescue highlighting this classic feature of the course?

The Grounds Department staff from both our St. Martins facility and our Flourtown facility gathered for lunch on Friday afternoon.

The above photo shows our great staff, a couple of carts from our recent John Deere equipment package, and the new bunkers on Militia Hill.

Militia Hill Bunkers Complete!

Our Militia Hill bunker project is complete! We have been pleasantly surprised that the bunker sand is already firming up, and they are playing great.

As our staff's time will no longer be spent repairing bunker washouts, members will now begin to see improvements to all other areas of the course as well. Enjoy!

The new bunkers on #7!

The new bunkers on #6!
