Heavy equipment was rented for the moving and placing of the rocks. With some of them weighing over 2000 pounds, the work was tedious and time consuming to transfer the rocks from the Maintenance Facility to their final destinations. Ricardo Gomez, one of our long term employees, was once again instrumental in assisting with the project and without his efforts, these type of projects could simply not be undertaken.

Overall, the entire project has been a success with many compliments coming from both golfers and guests. Architect, Kipp Schulties, has visited the site and is extremely pleased with the results. From a golfers perspective, the narrow approach areas on both holes has been widened by around 15 feet and creates a slightly easier approach to the greens complex without golf balls rolling into the water as easily.
From an aesthetic perspective, the increased visual quality from both the golfers view and from the surrounding homes, the change has been quite dramatic.
I cant thank the Copperleaf Maintenance staff enough for their work in constructing and completing these projects; it is a massive undertaking to complete "in-house" and still be maintaining the golf course to the high standards expected on a daily basis.
We look forward to the renovation of the golf course starting April 13, 2015 and the various projects that will be undertaken.
