    The improvements on the course continue. A lot to tell here.

    First, the course is closing around June 12th to re-do all of the greens in Mach 1 Bermuda (I think that’s the right kind, it was used at Streamsong) with the plan to re-open around Labor Day. Some updates to the clubhouse and driving range are also part of the plan.

    In addition, they have been building new tees on several holes (back tee on par-5 18th, new tee to stretch par-3 11th to nearly 220! if you are brave, new tees on 3 open for play). A lot of sod has been put down in places to fill in bad spots and around tees and greens.

    All of the tree stumps that were still there a couple of years ago from the removal of hundreds of trees on the parallel holes 12-15 on the back nine have been removed.

    And finally, they have begun work on moving the 1st green back behind the pond where it was originally and moving the 8th green back and to the right to a higher spot to avoid the flooding problem the creek on that hole has presented over the years.

    This course is a great value and definitely worth the drive to get there.

FYI - Tega did a deep verticut earlier this week and didn’t have it mentioned on their website. Rode down there today to get a road round in while Skybrook recovers from aerating only to be completely disappointed. Got a rain check at the turn…give it a couple weeks...
