15 Tee renovation

Before pictures of the 15 forward tee

The existing tee was layed out in a manner that the left side of the forward tee was in the landing area of a slightly errent shot from the 16th tee. The new tee will reorient the layout of the tee more perpendicular with the hole closer to the cart path and out of harms way.

Driving Range Tee Expansion



Stripping the sod from the existing 4200 square foot driving range tee.




After the top soil is stockpiled, the subsoil  is bulldozed to create a 10,500 square foot practice tee. 


Sub soil base is ready for the tee mix and top soil surrounds.


Building a form for the driving range artificial turf. Compacting crushed concrete and stone dust for a firm and level base for the mat.





Sod rolls being installed


Tee surface completed and being irrigated 


Checking the pitch of the drainage trench with a smart tool


Tee surrounds being sodded with turf type tall fescue



All done....... Great job by the Rossmoor Golf Course Maintenance staff.
