Third Tee

4th Fairway Drainage

As many of you have noticed, the fourth fairway has been nothing short of a disaster so far this year. With the runoff from the hill along with the water seeping up from below, the fairway has been constantly soaked with many large air pockets.

WW decided to bring in a specialized drainage contractor from Kentucky to resolve this issue. The project began on Tuesday, June 21st. It will be completed later this afternoon (Thursday, June 23rd). They have designed a ‘grid’ system that covers the problem areas. The project is taking a bit longer than expected due to heavy rain each night.

Once finished, the fairway will take about a week to completely drain, but it will still be playable. After that, it will be back to normal and should not need anymore attention.

We thank all of you for your patience regarding this issue.
