The Farm Golf Club, Rocky Face, GA

East Coast Project: The Farm Golf Club

The Farm Golf Club in Rocky Face, GA sits on one of the most spectacular properties anywhere. The Farm was designed by Tom Fazio in 1988, and hosted the US Senior Amateur in 2005. Trey Cutshall worked with Dennis Hurley from TDA on a Master Drainage Plan that details every area that affects playability or maintenance. Once the planning was completed, the club quickly began the construction phase which will last approximately 6 months. The weather has been tough during the first month, dumping over 6 inches of rain and 3″ of snow on the contractor, Siphon Systems, Inc.

If there is any contractor in the country that can handle these conditions, it is SSI. They have 18 years of experience installing drainage systems planned by TDA. Trey says, “We are thrilled to be underway. I know this is the single most important thing we can do for this course and our membership.” We will keep you up to date on the progress here.
