The "Root" of the problem

The right side of the 15 green at White Wing has been habitually wet. We had drainage installed this summer and plugged balls are still occurring this time of year. Most recent investigation found the drain line toward the native to have been crushed and full of feeder roots from the surrounding area bushes and small trees near the native. The contractor this summer did not remove and replace the pipe in this area. Hopefully this will help with the water logged soil as it can now drain. If it persist we will add additional fingers to the herring bone drainage in place in that area to collect more water.
