Golf course renovation is underway and we are off to great start!
We broke ground last Monday and in the past week we have roughed in bunkering and tees on different areas of three holes and we are about to begin installation of the new irrigation system.
Our work on bunkers and tees continues next week as we work our way out of the corner of the property back towards the clubhouse. Depending on the progress of the irrigation system installation, we expect we will be putting down our first sod by late next week.
I am looking forward to our upcoming "Hard Hat" golf event. This event includes a tour of the golf course before the golfing begins, to give our membership a chance to see and hear a little bit more about what we are doing and have an opportunity to ask questions.
You have probably seen him on the course already, or at least heard his drone, so I would like to thank Scott Gralla for helping us keep you informed with the fly over pictures. What a great VIEW!

Meet the Crew!
A shaper is the guy who does the bunker excavating and bulldozer work. We are lucky to have 2! Our shapers are a pair of brothers, Pedro & Perez that have worked all over the country...including our work at Pebble Beach over the last 12 years. They have also completed renovations at Monterey Peninsula Country Club, Cypress Point Golf Club and did several golf courses for the late golf architect Mike Stranz. They come to us from the new course we are building in Denver, CDTC Denver. We are happy to have such a talented and experienced team with us on this project!
Our construction superintendent and project manager is Jimmy Cavezza. Jimmy also has an impressive resume of work in the Monterey Peninsula, having been our superintendent for many years at Pebble Beach. In addition, he built our award winning projects at Pronghorn in Bend Oregon and Shooting Star in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
If you see Jimmy on the course and you have any questions, ask him! All of us are accessible and want to make sure you know what's going on.
