The last section of mainline installation was through #1 tee and down 18 fairway.The final step of the mainline installation was the flushing of the line in order to get out any unwanted debris. Here's a video of the final flush.

All of May was spent installing mainline and restoring those "out of play" areas damaged by the tree removal phase of the project. We applied hydroseed to about 50,000 square feet of area.
|The hydroseed has a blend of annual ryegrass, turf type tall fescue, and chewings fescue.|
|Charging up and flushing some sections of the new HDPE mainline.|
|This narrow area behind 15 green was tricky since there was already stuff in the ground there like sewer, gas, power, and of course irrigation pipe.|
|It was really wet the day the LU team was behind 11 green. I thought the soft conditions would result in a lot of turf damage but they did a great job of cleaning up.|

Throughout the month of March we worked on the rail berm project. The reconstruction of this railroad berm adds some interesting ground contours to the right of the first green which needed to be completely rebuilt anyway since the tree removal there was so extensive. It's also a nice reminder of how important the railroad is to the history of the Club and the city of Tacoma.
