Annual cart path rehab. This is a major event as it is super labor intensive. First the paths are edged and then they are capped with new material. This project will take about 3 weeks.
Sand trap rehab. This process is known as the sand shuffle and is key to longevity and playability of the bunkers. Every trap is checked by digging down through the bunker sand to the native soil below to see how much actual bunker sand there is. If more than 4-5" of sand is present, it is moved to where there is not enough. If not enough sand is there to move and more sand is needed, sand is hauled in. Depth uniformity is key to maximize playability and you'd be shocked at how much the depth changes over a year's time.
Mulch bed rehab. The entire course has fresh pine straw put in the beds. I love it when the straw goes down, makes the place look "ready."
Accessories rehab. All of the tee signs have been painted and look amazing. They are black with silver letters and numbers. The signs look so good I am having the ball washers and posts painted as well.
Not really rehab, but definitely needed maintenance. All short grass areas are being topdressed this week. This is a key component to maintaining a firm playing surface.
Palm tree rehab. The process of trimming all 1200 palms have begun. It's a 3-4 week endeavor. We recycle all the fronds into landscape mulch to use on the perimeter fence lines.
Ficus hedge rehab. All trimmed up and looking good.
