Superintendent Ben McGargill and his crew have been extremely busy over the past several weeks as they ready the golf course for the various phases of the project. Putting surfaces, fairways and the complete rebuilding of the #1 green are the first orders of business since seed needs to be applied during a fairly specific window of time. These parts of the project are underway and proceeding nicely. Once the new seed has been sown and germinates, Ben will systematically begin the other components of the renovation. Many items will be accomplished over the next few months and a few will begin in early Spring of 2015. We are very confident that Ben, his crew and the contractors that have been selected to perform the work will stay on time and on budget for a June 2015 opening of what is expected to arguably be the best modern golf course in the Midwest.
