Chartiers Country Club Greens Drainage
As I was going through some nice early season pictures, I came across these two of the first two greens we tackled at Chartiers Country Club, # 18 and #1. Thanks for the trust, as I asked to have the two greens closest to the maintenance facility so our XGD staffers could get used to the facility.
As you can tell from the first picture of the squarish opening of #1 green there is still a sense of historic ties to the original Willie Park design over the years. This history recently has been handed over from previous golf course superintendent Darrin Batisky to new superintendent Bob Davis. At XGD we were lucky to have dealt with both as Darrin was instrumental in selling the membership on the point that our unique subsurface greens drainage system was a help in preparing the courses greens for the extremes of Mother Nature during the golfing season. While current superintendent Bob Davis was a pleasure to work with and install our greens drainage process on these historic old golf greens, which we just completed in late October 2010, so these greens could be put to bed properly for the upcoming winter season, having not to worry about subsurface moisture extremes throughout the winter, the club has made a wise investment widely popular in the Pittsburgh area.
I just wanted to give a special shutout to Chartiers CC and all the people responsible for ensuring a smooth XGD installation of 14 greens over a 2.5 week period, combating weather extremes typical for late October in western PA. As is typical on every XGD install, both the club and XGD benefit each time. It is this type of reciprocal relationship we have developed with all of our clients over a long period of time that allows XGD to have so many repeat customers.
So reach out to us if XGD might help alleviate your high gravitational groundwater table on your greens or fairways at XGD.
