Yesterday we had our Pre-Construction meeting to discuss logistics and answer any questions between the Lehman Design Group, Duininck Construction, Leibold Irrigation, Erik Christiansen (Irrigation Designer), and the ECC Grounds Department. Some grassing and sand details for the project are:
1.Greens: T-1 Bentgrass
2.Fairways, Tees, Approaches: Dominant X-Treme Bentgrass
3.Bunker Sand: Ohio Best (Grass Faced with Bluegrass, Sand Flat Bottom Style)
4.Irrigation: Toro LTC Plus (Wall to Wall Coverage)
The meeting moved on to the golf course where we were able to see how Tom views the hole and every feature on the hole especially the trees and that he really takes his time to make sure that the correct things are being done. He explained that two of his goals are to get you to use every club in your bag during your round of golf and to restore and Old World feel to the course (especially around the slopes and surrounds of the bunkers).
Next was the Ceremonial Ground Breaking and picture opportunities for everyone involved. The picture (left to right) is of Mike Powers, Chris Brands, Tom Lehman, myself, Jeff Mold, and Kevin Gruber. We have one more weekend of the full golf course and our Men's Club Championship and then the fun begins next Wednesday.
