Lesson Tee Protection

Due to a high volume of golfers hitting horrible errant shots off the Driving Range Tee, we decided the Lesson Tee needed more safety protection after a few close calls of students almost being hit while getting a lesson from one of the Pro's.  After a few ideas were thrown out, I decided to do the project in house. The results came out better than expected.  Our new protective netting gives 99.9% safety to our students and the Pro's teaching them on the Lesson Tee. The pictures will show from installing 4 posts in concrete, to framing and painting, and finishing with hanging the netting.

Sinkhole Repair Part 2

Near the end of the 2019 season we had a new sinkhole occur due to a collapsed culvert on the overflow in the pond near 4 tee box. The sinkhole was about 10 feet wide by 15 feet deep. A new concrete culvert was put in to fix the issue. The pictures in this post will tell the story....
