18th green in 2016 after rain
Greens drainage is always one of the most important factors to good greens. Our aerification and topdressing practices over the last 4 years have obvious results.

Throughout the golf course, years of topdressing has made a tremendous change. This added sand has allowed carts back out onto the golf course after some pretty significant rain events this year, and playability remains high in the fairways where years of sand has been added. Over time the topdressing being added to roughs will yield the same results.
Hopefully the rains continue through winter, and significant drought recovery is achieved. If they do continue, rest assured that the course is draining better than ever, and improvements are continuing.
