Golf Course

Ranked by the USGA as one of Washington State's most challenging courses

Carved from a classic Northwest Forest on the Sammamish Plateau, The Plateau Club offers a picturesque 18-hole championship golf course co-designed by Perry Dye and Masatsugu Saito. With five sets of tees on every hole, the course is designed to suit golfers of all playing abilities. An intricate drainage system ensures year-round playability, while enhancing the protection of the beautiful wetlands and abundant wildlife found throughout the property.

Keeper of the Greens - June 2016

In last month’s newsletter I spoke about #9 greenside bunker remodeling. This bunker needed repair from general play and maintenance over the years. Ridge Top Golf Construction was in to remodel and put this green side bunker back to original construction and the way the bunker was designed when the course was built. My team and I did much of the work in-house to meet our goals on this project. We were very happy with how this bunker was refinished when the work was completed and re-opened for the membership. While we are on the subject of bunkers; we have already edged and fly-moved all the bunkers for this upcoming golf season. We will be working on the wall faces, measuring sand depths and continuing to add sand over this month to keep the bunkers in great condition. Our standard operating procedure is to perform a full edging every spring. We cut the bunker edges so that the bunkers are clearly defined and this sets a quality standard for the season. Once this process is completed, we go back in every two weeks and pull the sand off the edges of the bunkers then flymow around the edges. Our turf department has two new Turf Management Interns joining us for the summer. Seth Lepine from Louisiana State University and David White from Tennessee Tech University. It’s nice to have some guys from the South and we are looking forward to them learning more about Golf Course Management in the Pacific Northwest.
