Course Renovation 2022
Renovation Upate April 23, 2022
We have now been under construction at VCC for eighteen working days, and much has been accomplished, and we are off to a good start. Eric Ullrich will still provide his informative and weekly Turf Talk, but I wanted to update everyone on the design and construction progress to date.
The Arcis Construction Team only has three specialty contractors on-site; a Tree Company, a Concrete Company, and a Lake Construction/Dredging Company. So most everyone you may have seen on-site is an Arcis Team Member. We all work long hours and most generally seven days a week to meet our schedule and construct a fantastic golf course.
As most of you know, we started with the quadrant of holes six through nine, which provides an excellent contained area to finish off and sprig as soon as possible. As we finish our construction works on holes #6-9, we will progress from hole #5 to the #2 tee complex. As you can tell, we are working our way out of the three distinct canyons that VCC occupies. It’s imperative that once we install the bunker sand, sod around the bunkers, mulch, and sprig the remaining turf areas, we don’t have construction equipment returning to any areas. Several days ago, we moved shaping operations and the bulldozer across the road to start rough shaping.
I will go through the holes sequentially and provide brief bullet points on what work has been done in each area.
