The agronomy department installed a large drainage system on 7 approach/fairway to replace the non-functioning drainage in this area and remove excessive drain basins. Sloping of the right approach was improved to facilitate a cleaner appearance and improve surface drainage. An additional 75 tons of sand was applied to 4 and 7 drainage to replace lost sand and repair the damage left from the last monsoon storm. Additional sand will be required as needed to help smooth the fairway. Work continued repairing weak and damaged areas with new sod and will continue next week, which should hopefully wrap up the majority of sod work needed.
