Guess Who's Celebrating a Birthday?
It's hard to believe, but Labor Day weekend marks 25 years since the first holes at Laurel Creek were completed. #6 and #13 (or #15 and #4 as they were known then) were the first greens seeded.
And as we celebrate Labor Day, consider the amount of labor that went into building the golf course. 1.3 million cubic yards of material were moved during construction. That may be a difficult number to visualize, so try thinking of it this way. 1.3 million cubic yards would equal a wall of dirt with these dimensions: 3' high x 3' wide x 739 miles long!
