Hinsdale Golf Club Classic XGD
Matt Magarian’s Chicagoland XGD install crew led by Jesus Bautista recently began their 18 green/approach project at this historic old tract in the West suburbs about a week ago. This club originally broke ground in 1898 right beside their present location. Popular architect of his time, Herbert J. Tweedie, laid out the original 9 hole tract before the the last 9 holes emerged a few years later.
Interestingly enough, TDIGolf completed a bunker restoration here about five years ago with architect Billy Fuller and they look like they were just completed, a real testament to superintendent Bob Maibusch and his stellar staff. However, after two straight dreadful summers weather wise, Hinsdale GC was looking to take their old pushup greens to another level. This is when they contacted us, and several of our Chicagoland clients, to see if our internal subsurface greens drainage process might be the answer they were looking for. As you can see by the video below, taken just two hours after we left #1 greensite, that it appears at least the playability of the green after the non-invasive XGD surgery is no longer in question:
Once Matt’s other crew finishes up their project at Old Elm, they will be joining up for a two crew assault on the 18 greens at Hinsdale after Thanksgiving.
So please reach out to us if you might want to stop by some of our installs taking place in your part of the world, as we presently have a crew in Pittsburgh and 3 crews in the NY Met area as well.
