This is one of the small projects we completed this week. The approach to the 10th green has long been a golfers nightmare. Any putt rolling toward the front of the green would likely end up back in the fairway 30 yards away from the green requiring a chip shot back onto the green.
We removed about twenty feet of sod from in front of the green and added soil to raise the approach about twelve inches. The sod was put back into place and roped off to protect it until a new root system can be established. The ten feet of approach closest to the green is now almost level with the putting surface and will be cut at collar/approach height. This will prevent any balls from taking off down the hill and ending in the fairway.
