around # 3 Green.  This was necessary in order to allow more sunlight to reach the backside of our #3 green.  The entire back portion, especially the back right portion of the green, struggled.  Going into winter, with shorter days, we were concerned for the health of the green.

You can see in this picture how big the tree was, in comparison to the width of the green. We did some minor contouring of the site to allow water to filter to a nearby drain.  We filled in the finished site with 419 Bermuda sod, and added new mulch to the newly shaped bed of the existing Magnolias we had trimmed up.

Players now have a clear view back to the third hole from the fourth tee.  It also allowed for a steady amount of sunlight to hit the green, which will help in the health and playability of the green.  It took approximately 4 to 5 days, from the start of this project to the finish.
