We just completed some much needed drainage work on four fairway. This was an area that is routinely wet even after we have several dry days. The root of the problem can be seen in the picture below. Old clay drain tile runs throughout the course and has breaks in various areas. This tile weeps near the top of four fairway causing it to remain wet. We added about 100 feet of new drain tile to take it to an existing drain box. The process took us about a day and a half. We plan to fix the same type of problem in 9 fairway soon.
