Winter Project: #10 Bridge

Though the initial intentions in building a stone walk bridge to the front of #10 green were good, the construction hasn't held up to the wrath of Mother Nature very well. Last winter, the bridge repeatedly got pounded by the rushing creek created by several rainstorms producing more than 1" of rain in less than 24 hours. As a result, our crew had to do our best to piece the stone bridge back together by hand on four different occasions. Being a safety concern as well, we knew we needed a better long term solution.

With input from the Greens & Grounds committee, we decided to build a wood bridge in similar fashion to the existing bridges on the hole. Built in-house, we believe this new bridge will be much safer and should provide ample room for the majority of rushing storm water to run underneath the bridge freely. A fairly simple project that will save us labor this winter, and improves the safety and aesthetics of this key hole here at Winchester.
