The bottom of the hill on the right side of #13 has become a very wet area over the last year. It appears that drains are clogged and the native grass area has become silted in and is preventing water from draining from 13 into the drains and out of the area.
We are digging a small surface drainage trench with our backhoe thru the native area to allow the water to move out of the rough adjacent to the fairway on #13. We are investigating some of the additional drainage in that area to see if there are sections that are clogged with roots or other foreign material. Our first objective is to give the water somewhere to go. As the area next to the fairway begins to dry, we will then attempt to get the water underground in a pipe so we can keep this area dry for hitting a shot and mowing.
The area in question at the bottom of the hill in the right rough of #13. The tall green grass is just off of the begining of the fairway. #12 is in the background.
