Driving Range Improvements

Every year during the off-season we work on projects aimed at making Highlands Falls a better place to be a member.  While this winter has had its share of course improvement projects that you will all enjoy, one project has been a long time coming, improving the permanent tee on the driving range.
New teeing stations at the driving range.
Installing pavers at the driving range.
I am happy to report that the very unsightly "astroturf" permanent tee is no longer.  We have removed the artificial turf and begun installing brick pavers in its place.  The pavers are designed to give 12 separate teeing stations, an increase of 2 over the previous arrangement.  At each station will be the familiar mats that we have used in the past. 
A great project for a rain day
Being that the driving range is the first place a guest "plays" the course and thus the first impression they have of the facility, this was an improvement long overdue.  In addition to the new playing surface, we will be installing a new clock like the one at the putting green.  The clock was a donation from the friends of Dr. Al Mena in his memory.
