Off-Season Work Begins
Note that the Wissahickon Schist parking lot islands will match the stone which already exists on the bottom of our historic clubhouse. This stone is native to our area and is mined just a few blocks away from our St. Martins campus. It will tie in beautifully with many of the buildings which exist throughout our surrounding Chestnut Hill area.
Previously, these high visisbility parking lot islands were constructed of simple wood boards.
Installing irrigation around the Militia Hilll clubhouse is an example of a simple low cost, high member value repair we made as soon as Militia Hill closed for the year. In the future healthy turf and landscape plantings will greet you as you enter this clubhouse area. Another long-term benefit is we have the capability to expand irrigation at a later date into the parking lot islands.
