Day 2 - Great Progress is Made

Unfortunately, I do not have time this morning to add photos but I will try to do so this afternoon.

There is no question that by the end of day two everyone is quickly settling into their roles and the progress is speeding up - hard to believe we can move faster than day one, but we are!! Yesterday the core out of the 18th green was complete along with 17th, 3rd, 4th, and 5th greens - today we are scheduled to tackle the 12th, 13th, and 16th greens.

The shaping of the sub-grade on the first green is now complete and awaiting Mr. Doak's comments. The Renaissance shapers began shaping the sub-grades on the 2nd and 18th greens yesterday as well. I suspect by the end of today that both the 2nd and 18th green's sub-grades will be complete and awaiting Mr. Doak's approval. Mr. Doak is scheduled to make his first construction visit to the club mid next week to begin the approval process. Once Mr. Doak has approved the sub-grades, then the contractor can begin installing the drain tile, gravel and mix.

Lastly, the new 17th green site had all the existing sod stripped and removed yesterday so that any extra materials could start being stockpiled in that locaton. As the shapers begin working on the tees, all the excess fill on these tees will be re-located to this location to start building the green pad for the new 17th green.
