Kenosha Country Club Classic Greens Drainage
We are all in, with two crews this week working with GCS Scott Verdun at his Donald Ross designed facility Kenosha Country Club across the Chicago, IL border in SE Wisconsin. Scott and his team have been working hard restoring this fine old gem to its original glory, and at XGD Systems we are proud to be a part of that team aiding in restoring the course with our subsurface internal greens drainage program outfitted to the balance of Kenosha’s greens.
However, later this weekend XGD Supervisor Keith Kirsch will be loading up one of the crews from Kenosha to head up to the Twin Cities to complete the balance of the greens at the Minikahda Club , another Ross design. Minikahda represents our first, of hopefully many, full course installs in the MN area.
While on the Ross theme, we are also completing the balance of the greens and approaches at Plainfield Country Club ,NJ beginning in November, and this project contains nearly 150,000sqft in scope.
Back to the present and Keith just sent me in some pictures from our install at Kenosha yesterday which included a herringbone type design situation which is typical for a large portion of Kenosha’s greensites:
Also, this next picture shows a nice aggressive verti-cutting operation right after the XGD install, very cool:
Turfgrass can always handle more than we ever give it credit for. The picture above is just another shining example of this.
Please reach out to us and/or stop by one of our numerous projects this fall as we have six crews operating on greens and fairways across the country this fall season. Happy harvest moon.
