G.R.P. Update 9/21/2016

The construction portion of the project is winding down here at Pinnacle Peak Country Club. With the exception of a few last details, Landscapes Unlimited has completed work on site and has pulled their operation out.  FNV Landscaping is still on property, having just finished the cart path repair and extensions, as well as some landscape beds around the practice facility.  Moving forward, FNV will focus on continuing an update to the landscape around the practice facility house and begin to trim all oleanders on property.

The agronomy team continues to finish up projects around the golf course, and is beginning to focus on mowing and preparations for upcoming overseed.  The tentative schedule is for preparation and scalping to be done the week of October 3rd, with seeding scheduled the following Monday and Tuesday, October 10 and 11.  These dates are tentative and may change slightly dependent on schedule and weather.

The greens grow-in is progressing nicely, with greens currently being mowed every other day and continue to be fertilized as needed.  Mowing frequency will increase shortly and the heights will begin to be lowered as conditions and fall weather permit.  Overall, we are pleased with the progress we have seen.

Greens and collar ready for a mow on #5 late last week.

Finished cart path extension between the practice house and 18 green.  Two new trees have also been added as part of the landscape upgrade in this area.

Improved spillway leading off the course behind 3 tee.

Adding soil to the tee surround on 16 to help tie-in the new cart path extension leading to the black tee on #16.  Sod is scheduled to be installed later this week.

New arroyo complete that separates 7 tee and 4 fairway.

Reshaped and expanded retention between #4 and #7.  This should help keep normal rain events from depositing excessive silt on 4 fairway.
