#18 Cart Path Project

This week, the grounds staff put the finishing touches on the cart path expansion/curb project on #18 green.  This has been a much talked about and anticipated project and I am very pleased with how it turned out.  I would be remiss if I didn't mention and thank the City of Owasso Public Works Streets Department.  They lent a big hand by forming and pouring not only the curb, but the cart path as well!  We couldn't have done a project of this scale without their help.

All the signs and rope have been pulled and the cart path is fully accessible now.  Please use caution when stepping on fresh sod as it may shift under foot.

Here are a few pictures of the project:

Fairway Expansions

You may notice over the next few weeks certain areas in the rough near fairway edges will look scalped.  These are areas that we've selected to lower to fairway height.  Lowering the height of cut on these area should allow more landing area for tee shots and also give more room for laying up on certain holes.  The picture below is aerial image of the lower half of #11 fairway.  The green shaded areas show the existing layout of the fairway with the changes marked in yellow.  While adding this area to the fairway will give golfers a better chance to hit the fairway, it also brings the hills in the area more into play.

Over the next few weeks, we are also planning on making some slight changes to the fairways on #2, #15 and #18.  Stay tuned!
