G.R.P. Update 7/29/2016

Another productive week here at Pinnacle Peak Country Club. Landscapes Unlimited continued the drainage installation, currently wrapping up on 1 and moving to 8 tomorrow.  Sand mix installation has started, with the putting and chipping green, 10, 11 and 13 nearing completion.  Sod is scheduled to be installed around the putting area on Tuesday, with pre-plant fertilization and seed going down on Wednesday.  Andy's Tree Service was back on site, finishing up trim work on 14-16 and completing the last remaining trees on 6. Bartlett's Tree Experts were also here, finishing up the air-spading around the base of some of our mature trees.

The Agronomy department continued as well, with the third application of topdressing sand applied to numbers 1-13.  Next week should finally do it with the last of the old greens mix, with the remaining sand located on 15 and 16.  It's been a laborious and time consuming process spreading all the sand, but should really pay dividends moving forward. Sand capping and smoothing the tee surfaces continued as well, and will be ongoing for the next few weeks as needed.  Sod was installed on the new tee complexes on 1 and 3, and once healed will begin being mowed and groomed.  A large section of drainage was installed on the right side of 2, which should help that area tremendously moving forward.  

Putting and chipping green surface and irrigation being finalized.  Sod scheduled to be installed next Tuesday with seed going down next Wednesday.
