Like many areas throughout the course, the original steel corrugated drain pipe under the fairway had corroded and deteriorated to the point that the bottom and sides were no longer present. As a result, a large sink hole had formed causing a serious safety hazard. We immediately began to replace the pipe but it soon became clear that this project was not one that we could perform safely.
