Summary: Golf course irrigation water is stored in this man made creek which runs downhill from the residential areas to the pump lift station. The creek becomes an attractive water feature for the development. Workers installed all Grasspave2 mats in one day (7,100 sf of what they had ordered, then had to order more for a total of 7,500 sf and finished 5-3-03). Watering is done every day because of the heat being able to dry out the sod quickly. There is Bermuda sod on the residential side of the cart path, and Tiff sod on the golf course side. The site is hook shaped coming down from the road fairly straight along the creek, then crosses over the cart path to form a hook to the right, then turning back toward a house where the lift station is situated.
Lonnie Rodriguez and Bill Bohnhoff are standing on the new utility access lane where it starts next to Fairways Street and continues a long distance to the golf course.
