After taking advantage of the weekends mild weather to edge and install drainage on the bunkers at the 16th green. We were able to obtain sod to start covering the bare earth in that area on Monday with temps in the upper 30's. Unfortunately, we did not finish and had to continue on Tuesday with the high temp of 20 degrees and a wind chill in the single digits. The guys are so bundled up I can't even tell who they are.

A portion of the construction committee met on Thursday to inspect the latest work completed on the golf course. Even though some of the members are camera shy, this did not prevent Kent Silhanek, John Frampton and Dave Pagett from mugging it up for the camera.

This is the right fairway bunker on the 2nd hole shaped, edged, drained and ready for sand. The combination of WVCC staff and McDonald & Sons crew are making headway through the winter weather.
Sand has been installed in the 1st fairway bunker on the right side of 17 fairway. The picture does not show how the landing area has changed for the approaching golf season. When this complex is further along we will be able to post detailed pictures.

WVCC staff yesterday install sod around #2 green surround. This will give everyone a finished product look and really show off the amount of green surface that was recovered during the bunker project. Even though it is named the "Bunker Project" there will be work done around the greens to restore classic pin positions.

It may be cold out but this does not stop the grounds department from installing 32 tons of new sand in the bunker on the right side of two green. The plywood you see is used to protect outside the bunker from damage from the many loads of sand delivered.
