The weather is finally starting to feel like summer and we are having days where it isn’t raining from sun up to sun down. Do you know what that means?? That means it’s time to get out and golf here at Dogwood Glen! We are constantly trying to improve the look and play of the course. Here is what has been happening at Dogwood Glen!
The last couple weeks here at Dogwood Glen have been busy. For the most part we have avoided the storms and the heavy rain and that has allowed our crew here to work on some bigger projects. One of these projects is our 7th hole fairway sand trap. After a long time of not being able to drain properly, the clay, dirt, and sand was packed down and ruining the sand trap and surrounding grass area. To fix it they had to dig up the previous tile and clear out the space around it. They replaced the tile that runs through and around the sand trap and then put pea gravel on top of the tile to help the water drain. The pea gravel creates a layer above the tile that helps water flow down into the tile to be taken away and drained. After the pea gravel was put in, our crew started loading in dirt and now is finishing up with a nice fresh layer of sand! That sand trap is looking good as new!
Be on the lookout for signups and registration for Heritage Pointe’s Parkinson’s golf outing and also for their Alzheimer’s outing coming up here in the next couple of months!
