Great progress was made this week.
#5- The bunker liner, sand, and sod were all installed this week. This combination provides a glimpse of the finished look. We expect to lay the green and approach sod next week.
#4- Rough shaping of “The Great Hazard” was also accomplished. It is exciting to see one the club’s post-card features begin to take shape.
Please view the updated time-lapse videos and photos below.
