Even though the cooler temperatures and rain have slowed down the progress of the Bermuda fairways, the project is right on track. The ideal weather for the next three weeks is sunny with high temperatures of at least 95 degrees and little to no rainfall. SO….. Rain, Rain, Go AWAY!!!
The tees and greens will be even better than before, and are making great progress. The enlarged teeing areas will give DeBordieu Club more flexibility with tee locations.
As with all new courses, the DeBordieu fairways are going to be in good shape when the course opens, but will not reach full maturity until next summer.
Work is underway on the new tee complex on DeBordieu’s hole #11. This will bring the total yardage on hole #11 to 551 yards!
While constructing the tee complex, drainage will be added to the lot. This addition will significantly reduce standing water in this area.
The removal of old
sand in the bunkers is complete. The process of refilling the bunkers has started and should be complete in about two weeks. The bunkers will be filled with sand that meets or exceeds the USGA specifications. This new sand will provide a more consistent playing surface in all of the bunkers.
