Golf Course Update

Good morning,

As many of you know the sprigging process started yesterday morning.  We made significant progress as 14 greens were completed.  The remaining greens are being sprigged this morning and should be completed by the end of the day.  We had a tremendous turnout of members that volunteered their time to help put sprigs down and make the process move along much faster than anticipated.  This will allow us to open up the back nine for play starting tomorrow, August 5th.  The front nine will remain closed until further notice with heavy tree trimming and removal taking place.

** We also ask that you please refrain from walking on the newly sprigged greens.  This is a major investment in the golf course and we want to ensure it is a success, so please stay off the greens while they are growing in.  Thank you for all of the support!

Thank you,

CCC 2021 Golf Course Renovation – Update 2

CCC 2021 Golf Course Renovation – Update 2

The CCC golf course renovation continues, with significant objectives
accomplished this week. The third and final application of chemicals to kill our
bent grass was applied, and your project team transitioned to greens preparation
for TifEagle sprigging. Deep core aerification, multiple iterations of verticutting,
and limited shaping on our most severely sloped greens. In addition, we cut and
removed the latitude grass around the edges of all greens. This initiative will assist
with limiting encroachment of our existing latitude grass into the TifEagle post
grow in. Soil samples were taken and submitted to an analysis lab in Nashville—
the results will dictate the amount of phosphorus, potassium, calcium,
magnesium, sulfur, boron, copper, iron, manganese, zinc, sodium, and nitrate
nitrogen that we will need to apply prior to sprigging. Historically, our turf has
sustained very good levels of phosphorus, calcium, iron, and zinc.

Green Shaping

Holes three, six, and nine have been modified. We are confident the adjustments will increase the number of available pin placement locations on each green. The most significant change was on number three. It is now a two–tiered green, with a deceiving false front.

Irrigation Upgrades

This effort continues, and will remain our highest
priority throughout the TifEagle grown in. Our irrigation
system remains our highest risk, with progress being
made to repair inoperable water heads, irrigation lines,
and automation control of each zone. All repairs, and full
system upgrade will not be completed during this project
but will remain a priority project over the next 24
months. We are on schedule to complete the repair of all green side systems to
ensure we can support the TifEagle watering cycles.
  • Front Nine Drainage Mitigation

    Our initial repairs were tested with this week’s heavy rainfall. We achieved
    success as drainage on holes number five and six drastically improved. The front
    nine will receive heavy bulldozer work next week to complete our objectives on
    the front nine holes.
  • Heavy Tree Trimming and Tree Removal

    We understand that some of our members are concerned with the number of trees we are removing from the course. We are sensitive to those concerns; however, we must reduce the cost of labor, support equipment and material as these costs are directly tied to member fees.

    The USGA released an excellent article “Five Things Every Golfer Should Know About Trees on The Course”. It is a short read, and I would encourage all to review it as it fully captures the intent behind our objectives: We are removing trees that limit play from all areas of our existing T boxes; enable grass growth in those areas we have roots, and rocks; and mitigate the significant cost of labor to clean-up fallen branches after every storm.

  • Golf Course Closure

    Unfortunately, the golf course will be closed next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (August 3-5). Sprigging, and heavy equipment will be operating across all 18 holes. The driving range and short game areas will remain open.

    Sincerely,
    The Project Team
