Curious as to the composition of the soil.  Sand with some gray clay?

Rob,


I donít know for sure, but am assuming both the Tree Farm and Old Barnwell are looking like fall next year.


Would be great to hear a better estimate if  someone knows.

No idea when the "Official" tree Farm Opening is, BUT my guess would be some form of golf COULD be played there this fall. Most of it is grassed/sprigged(or about to be) and bermuda loves hot weather and water, and they're getting plenty of both.
Multiple pictures on Instagram show great progress-well worth a look.

Obviously once we get to Octoberish the bermuda stops growing much and kind've in a growth holding pattern till late mid-April, but it really comes down to when Zac wants to present it to the world and in what state.No doubt a ton of work still do.
Heck, he's been hitting shots out there for well over a year ;)


Old Barnwell is a bit behind that.


As far as "preview play" it just depends upon one's definition.

I was at both sites over the 4th of July weekend. I think that the Tree Farm could see some early preview play like 6 holes in June of next year and have 18 open for preview play by October.


Old Barnwell is a little longer out and I wouldn't expect to play there till late '23 to mid '24. As of early last month, they didn't have any irrigation in the ground yet.

Ben,


Thanks for your input. I saw and toured Old Barnwell in June but have only seen drawings of The Tree Farm routing plan. Having seen both recently, would you say the routings are very different, in part due to a large difference in tree clearing?

Zac Blair is currently 10 under par in 5th place at the Korn Ferry event in Utah after 2 rounds. Looks like he may be able to put in few more bunkers with a high finish. Go get em, Zac. 8)
I love golf, the fightin irish, and beautiful women depending on the season and availability.

While I donít have any inside info on when anyone will be playing golf at either new build, in the south it is common to play some golf in the late fall on turf planted in early - mid summer. 
In the last 5 years weíve performed 3 builds in the south with Bermuda grass where golf was being played less than 12 months after starting the work.
Iíll be very surprised if some golf isnít played later this year at The Tree Farm and I predict all 18 are in play by late spring/ early summer next year.

I certainly can't speak for Zac and the team at the Tree Farm (who are several months ahead of us), but at Old Barnwell we're still on target for an opening in September of '23 of the first 18, the practice areas, and hopefully the kids course. Any major delays on our end are more likely to be related to the clubhouse and lodge, which are designed, but have not been submitted for approval.


Ben, I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you when you visited! Let me know next time you want a tour.

Nick,


I didnít realize the kids course was on that schedule. Great to hear. Hope you and the team are all well.
