Finished Holes 4 & 6

The weather held as we were able to complete the upper portion of hole 6. We were able to trench from the rock catch basin area up to the pond by the green. The rock catch area will be replaced with a standard catch basin with steel inlet grate. This will catch any runoff from the pond after a rain event or in the spring with the snow melt.
Next we trenched up the left side of the fairway and added 3 lateral drains to intercept any water that has plagued that area. It was wet when we worked the area and is a bit messy but the water began draining away.
We finished this area on Wednesday morning and with the weather forecast called for snow and cold, we went over to the low area in front of the green. I was able to clean out some of the existing drains that were coming out of the green and bunker. We installed about 100' of new tile in the fairway to take care of the wet spot. With the spoils from this area, we dumped them in the area between holes 4 & 5 where the washout from the drain lines are. We will seed and blanket this area in the spring.
On Thursday, the weather hadn't moved in so we got out and trenched about 25' in the low area in front of the 9th green. Just as we finished, the cold wind picked up and we proceeded to clean up the equipment and store everything for winter.
I will recap the project tomorrow and set up the schedule for completion in the spring.
