$16,500 has been raised to build Brough Creek National. Here is how we are spending the money. Four core focus areas – Material, Turf, Tools and Equipment, and Other.
45 ton of a top soil/sand mixture used to shape the 4th and 5th greens, tee boxes and used to fix drainage issues. This category also includes bunker sand – over 5 ton will be used on the 7th hole bunker.
13,500 sq ft of Zoysia sod for greens and tee boxes. 500 pounds of Turf Type Tall Fescue Seed for the remaining areas. Some fertilizer(s). Keeping the turf in shape will be our biggest expense post build.
Tools and Equipment:
We will be purchasing a greens mower used for the green complexes and tee boxes. We have selected a Hudson Star Classic Cut manual reel mower for this need. A push mower needs to be purchased and some rental equipment used. Hand tools like rakes and shovels. A lot of the equipment like the Kubota tractor and chainsaws we owned previously do not count towards the total.
All the other stuff that makes BCN possible. Water, overground irrigation system, protective gear and unforeseen costs round out this category.
