Course Conditions Updates - Sod and Tee Aerification

In an effort to keep you as informed as possible on the course conditions here at Lake Presidential, we will be detailing the work we're undertaking to improve the grounds

Here are two shots of sod removal on hole one. The removed patch will become new rough at the front of the fairway, and the removed sod is being transplanted to areas with turf damage.

The following two images show the work that has begun on recovering our tee grounds.  The front nine was started yesterday and includes, soil amendments, aerification, and top dressing.  This will expedite good and sustainable turf growth over the next 30 days to provide us with excellent tee ground coverage.
