Wissahickon Restoration Update 9/6/13

This week saw work being done in phase II and phase III between rain storms. The new area by the club houses was sodded which included the first tee, the new larger putting green, and the 18th green.  Phase II also saw the 11th and 17th green and surrounds get sodded and green side bunkers put in.  Phase III saw the shaping of the 14th and 15th greens as well as the tees at 16 and 12 starting to take shape.  This includes the new championship tee at 12, which will provide a dramatic and challenge tee shot for the 12th hole.  Please enjoy the photos below and the time lapse video of the 14th green construction with the 15th green and 16th tee in the background.
