Championship Course Update, August 28

From Mike Wilcox:

The sod crew has finished with all of the bunker surrounds on the back-nine. All green and bunker areas on the back have now been covered with new “419 bermudagrass” sod. They started working on hole #9 this afternoon.
Wadsworth Golf Construction is working on the fairway bunkers on the front. They have installed drainage, gravel and sprayed the Better Billy Bunker liner in a couple. They have also begun adding new sand to a few more greenside bunkers on the front.
The greens are filling in quickly. The Tanglewood maintenance staff is doing a great job bringing them along. They have been busy top dressing, rolling, feeding and mowing to get them ready. They look terrific.
 

Another Championship Course Update

From Mike Wilcox:

There is still a lot left to do, but we are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Sand!!! It’s exciting to start seeing sand in some of the bunkers. The contrast between the new sod and the white sand really makes the green complexes standout and look picturesque.
The greens are still progressing well and look terrific for 5 weeks of growth.
Weather has delayed the sod team to some extent, but they have managed to get a few new areas covered.
Here are some new photos.
