Winter Project Update

Our grounds staff has been working aggressively between freeze and thaw cycles to keep projects progressing on time for Spring.

At St Martins, we are finalizing the hole locations on our artificial putting before we install the turf and put down our brick border.  We have also completed construction on the a roof extension at the pool back-of-house to increase storage  and space for storage for a new ice machine.

At Flourtown, we are working on installing new artificial turf at the upper range tee by the teaching sheds to help deal with the sustained and concentrated traffic up there.  We are also working on installing a new awning at the Militia Hill club house.  We are currently in the process of installing a bluestone base.

St Martins Artificial Putting Green


Our in-house project team constructing the mini-golf inspired artificial putting green at St Martins.

Review of fine grade prior to setting in slight undulations and the brick border.

When the plants leaf out in the Spring, this putting green will feel intimate and tucked-in among the Magnolia Trees

St Martins Golf Course Cart Path Repairs

We recently replaced the deteriorating asphalt cart path entries on the golf course with brick.  This improvement has immediately provided a clean, classic look and visually ties together both sides of our property intersected by Harwell Lane.
