Building the Seventh Green

IMG_5977 copyWork has begun on the seventh green, although the rest of the hole will have to wait, since a giant pyramid of sand is sitting in the fairway. The green is positioned close to its original location, and it will be well-protected, as you can see from drawing below.

7greenTwo bunkers and a saving fairway trough left of the green are designed to catch wayward shots and prevent them from finding the natural sandy area below, between the seventh and ninth holes. You can also see the creek that will be re-introduced as a hazard. That creek, which ran from near the middle of the driving range to the trees right of the first hole, was buried during original construction.

Here is a view of the green from the front:
