I have mentioned here in the past about how we have a red clay in the greens down about 6-8 inches from the surface. This was done when they constructed the greens in 1936 to conserve water. The only place on the course I have seen this clay is in the greens and on the 9th green side of the lawn. I assume that was the stock pile when they imported it from somewhere on the island, maybe the cliffs. I had Kev save me a piece when changing cups one day last week. not sure the picture will show the distinct reddish color.

nice grouping. 3 of our tee shots on 13 at Farm Neck, busmen's holiday. Barbini was in the woods or somewhere
