I wanted to share a shorty video of one of our XGD Supervisors Jesus Bautista kicking out greens drainage sod production. A whole assortment of XGD installation events took place before Jesus got to this stage. It is all the previous preparatory work that occurred before this for Jesus to make this part of our install operation so easy. At first glance it appears he is slapping the sod back in to place, but to the trained eye he is being extremely efficient and conscientious towards our clients and giving them an extremely high quality product when Jesus leaves any green.
I also wanted to share some info on this client as we completed its #14th Punchbowl green as designed in 1920 by acclaimed golf architect Seth Raynor. While he was building another local club in St Paul, Somerset CC, he came over and signed on to build another set of fantastic greens for Midland Hills. They also have a very good club history insert on their website for those that are in to that at Midland Hills Country Club
Matt Magarian and staff have several 2-4 green projects in the Twin Cities area over the next few weeks so please contact us directly if you are in the vicinity of Oak Ridge CC or MN Valley CC as we would love to have any and all over at these fine facilities to view an XGD green “under the knife”. Matt and his two very large crews will then begin in earnest in the Chicagoland area to finish off their extremely busy XGD installation window. In Chicago please reach out to us at Bob O’Link GC on the Northshore, and Ridgemoor CC and Hinsdale GC on the west side. Thanks, Poor Old Dirt & Grass Farmer
