Welcome to the Winnetka Men's Club
Update on Golf Course Rennovation: 18 Hole course almost complete; now the grow in Phase.
They are making great progress. The seeding will be completed this week on the 18 hole course. Update pictures are posted in the gallery.
I took the Saturday 9/9 tour with Matt; the course is going to be awesome! If you have not signed up for a tour in September, sign up now!
- The only hole left to seed is #1
- New sand is in most of the traps. This will allow it to settle over the next 12 months.
- Most of the equipment is off the course (except #1, which will be completed this week).
- They expect water to begin flowing from the retention tanks (under Duke Chld Field) thru the par 3 to the 18 hole course lakes soon.
We will continue to post picture updates to the Gallery (in the top toolbar) .

Important Milestones in the Golf Course Rennovation:
The course closed November 1, 2022. and they have had decent weather to work. Highlights of note:
Removal of trees is completed. The picture updates in the gallery from November and December show the impact.
As they remove dirt, they are starting to build up the fairways (Hole 12 fairway has been covered with 12-18 inches of dirt). Jeff Werstak's pictures in the gallery from Dec 11 do a great job of showing how much they will raise the fairways.
The clay from digging the new lake on 17/18/15 is being used to form the goilf course. 12-24 inches of topsoil is placed over the clay.This will not be a flat golf course! Water will run off to lakes or drainage areas.

All of cart paths have been paved by end of August
Seeding commenced on the North end of the course around Aug 1
