During our closed period for aerification on Wissahickon, we worked on the changes on 9 Wissahickon. The dead elm was cut down and removed. The new layout to 9 would consist of native fine fescue along the right side of 9 fairway and tying into the fairway bunkers. Rather than waste the rough sod on the right side of 9 we flopped it over to the left of 6 fairway.

Once stripped we began sod swapping 9 rough to the left of 6
The fine fescue will tie into the right side of the fairway bunkers for a natural look
