Expansions

If you have been able to get out and play, you probably noticed some bronzed colored grass. What this is really, is the turf being mowed at a lower height of cut. Over time, mowing patterns change and edges seem to wander away from normal. In other cases, it is a playability issue as we strive to provide a user friendly approach.

There are several approaches shown here that we expanded to allow greater ball roll toward the green. This also allows a different chipping technique or putting stroke to get on to the green.
                                           This shows us widening the approach to 17.
                                           The back collar is larger on green 6.

We also moved the fairway on 14 to the right of the tree. This gives a bit of forgiveness on tee shots.


 Part of the winter work is still evident as there is a brush pile to the left of the landing area. This will be burnt as soon as the burning restrictions are lifted.
Later in the summer, we will finish cleaning out the remaining brush to the OB stakes and plant grass. Not only will this make the playability better it will also speed up play.

This is a small part of our efforts to make Luck Golf Course the best it can be.
