#3 Pond Dam Construction Project
Yesterday, was the first day of the pond dam reconstruction project on #3. The earthen dam between the middle pond and lower pond at #3 washed out several years ago. Early on during the planning phase of this project we discussed not just replacing the dam with clay, but installing a concrete weir with native rocks so this hole would have a water feature. Design plans were created and the necessary funds were included in this years budget. The project kicked off yesterday and is expected to last up to 90 days depending on the weather.
While the contractors are working on this project, hole #3 will play as a temporary par 3. The tees have been moved to the fairway to ensure the safety of the construction workers while they are on site. The picture on the right shows the signage located at the tee complex. The aerial photograph pictured below depicts the general location of the work site relative to the in-play areas in the vicinity. Please note that in order for the project to be completed on schedule, the contractor will be working while golfers are in the area. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we work to complete this project.
