Before and After Powerpoint Presentation of Wissahickon Restoration

After seeing the popularity of the before and after video; we wanted to allow you to get a more detailed look at the before and after photos at your own pace.  Below are two Powerpoint presentations that will allow you to scroll through the photos at your own pace and really take in all the changes of each hole.  The first presentation is the before and after photos of the front nine and the second presentation is of the back nine.  We hope you enjoy scrolling through all the photos.

Wissahickon Restoration - Before and After Video Montage

Now that the major shaping is done and most of the holes have good turf coverage, it is amazing to see the differences in each hole afterwards, when compared to the before photos, taken in April.  To showcase these differences, we have made a "before and after montage video", that allows you to see a before photo; followed by an after photo.  Some holes still have areas that need to be sodded, so this video is just the first as we will continue to update the video as more holes are completed.  In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the video and hope it gives you a sense of just how each hole has changed.

Wissahickon Restoration Update 10/12/13

Since the last update we have completed all the major shaping on the course and continue to work on fine details along with our continued sod work, as we button up areas on the course.  The sod work has included, flopping sod in the fairways as the final lines of the fairways have been drawn out by Keith.  Another big portion of the sod work includes sodding the large bluff to the right of 15 with native fescue.  This will provide a dramatic view next summer when the fescue seed heads turn bright gold.  Please enjoy our most recent photos and our last time lapse video from 14 green.
