Irrigation Update

Leibold Irrigation has continued to make good progress over the past several weeks. They have completed installation on 5 entire holes and 2 additional tee complexes since their return in mid-March. ComEd has also connected the transformer which allowed us to power up the pump station and completely charge the irrigation system with water.

The building contractors are also on schedule with the exterior work on the pump house. They have started the Cultured Stone work which is turning out very nice.

Currently, there are only 4 1/2 holes remaining to complete; 4, 11, 12, 3, and half of 13. If weather allows us to continue at the current pace, we anticipate the installation process to be complete by mid-May. This would include the installation of pipe, wire, heads, and valve boxes. The remaining work after this will consist of fine tuning all system components (pump station, heads, valves, and software), restoration work of worn turf areas, and other minor details.

Until the project is complete, we will continue to close the necessary holes Monday through Thursday as done last season. However, no hole closures or interruptions will be seen Friday through Sunday. Thanks again for your patience in this regard, and we look forward to the project's end, as well as the new system's beginning.
