The side of the course closest to the Clubhouse was mined for many years. The upper layers consisted of a well-draining gravel, while below that was a dense clay, used for lining landfills. Interestingly, the wetlands to the right of #17 and 18 were largely manmade, as this area was mined to a level that it became impractical to keep water out.
The last clay cell to be mined was where the driving range is currently located.
|It took many truckloads of material to fill the range.|
