Work has begun to hang the net along the west end of the driving range. A crew of four men will work four days to accomplish the task. The net is over one thousand feet in length and extends to a height of forty feet. Plastic ties must be used every four inches to securely fasten the net to the cables which support the structure.
The irrigation system is being pressurized this week. Workers from Des Moines Water Works connected the pump station to our water supply this morning. Once the system is pressurized we begin the process of individually checking the functionality of approximately one thousand sprinklers on the property. Extreme Iowa winters wreak havoc on our sprinklers. Numerous repairs will surely follow.
