I'll help. I am off this weekend and could put in a few hours in the afternoon either day. Got a "bonus" day off next Thursday (the 29th) and would be willing to forego my first trip this year to play Farragut if we garnered a strong crew. Also, hoping we can also resolve the issues around hole 10. The erosion around the current pin placement is getting worse and worse. Players bottleneck when the course is busy. The foliage is taking a beating by frustrated players. Looks real bad from the road. Moving it 20 or 30 feet towards the original pin placement doesn't make it quite so challenging, but still a good alternate and takes the heat off the land.
The rail road runs near my house but they seem to using all of their ties for their trains...what's up with that! I do have some pressure treated and dipped 1 by 6's and maybe a couple of other odds and ends that could be utilized to tier or retain things on 18. I will dig around and get an inventory to you. -Tim
