Re: Island Greens
max, its in texas. for better or worse, it is a guy's back yard, his private resort/residence. its friends/invitees only, as are most backyards. there's security everywhere, including cameras both hidden and obvious, and T1 level bandwidth to security operators in dallas and more local. its not entirely playable at the moment anyway. there's three buildings under construction, two more that are being finished, so its a heavy construction zone. we only have one half of three fairways/greens done, one fairway/green completed, and 3/4s of another done. no teepads are formally complete. its prolly 2 more years til its wrapped up.
snarf, no, absolutely no concrete anywhere. we considered it but only briefly. we looked at four different levels of artificial surfaces, installing two type before rejecting them all. we also looked at several different other surface types before deciding on 100% natural turf.
