New Forward Tee on #11

Hole #11 at Leslie Park will soon be the hole with the most separate tee boxes. In the Fall of 2011, we constructed a new back tee box that brought the possible yardage on this hole to 503 yards. (You can read about it HERE and HERE) With the new water feature/wetland put in front of the current forward tee, it has become obvious that some golfers have too much trouble getting over the hazard. We decided that a new tee box should be built on the other side of the wetland. This brings our total number of tee boxes for this hole to 5.  The yardage from this tee will be around 325 yards.

The view from the white tee. You can see the brown hump where the new tee is going to be, to the left and forward of the wetland crossing.

The new tee in it's infancy.

We put some bluegrass sod around the tee to define the teeing surface as well as provide solid footing for golfers walking up the bank in the spring.

The bentgrass seeded into the tee is coming in well. We should be able to mow this before winter.
