During the construction of a golf course, the relatively flat topography of Southwest Florida is transformed into a beautiful landscape of rolling fairways, lakes, cart paths and other golf course features. Once the land is cleared, the long process of lake excavation and reshaping of the land begins. Material dug from the lakes is moved to other areas of the golf course or development. Finished lakes will not only serve as a golf course feature, but they also become habitat for wildlife and plant life, in addition to serving as areas for water retention or control.
Experienced golf course shapers operate heavy equipment to rough grade and shape the course. Dirt is moved from the lake areas or brought in from offsite to achieve the desired grades in keeping with the direction and drawings from the golf course architect.
Special golf course features require special expertise. Our team of professionals possess a commitment to quality and specific on-the-job knowledge and have proved their ability to perform in the field. Decades of experience translates to superbly constructed greens, fairways, traps and bunkers.
Golf cart paths can be built of asphalt, concrete, shell, or other desired materials. Bonness has the experience and equipment to build cart paths in any medium. We also repair and maintain existing golf cart paths requiring specially sized equipment to limit damage to surrounding areas.
Our crews meticulously install drain pipes, culverts, and catch basins for proper golf course drainage, as well as pumping stations and sprinkler equipment for irrigation. Each component is crucial for healthy turf propagation.
Following the installation of extensive underground drainage and irrigation systems and final grading to the desired elevation, the fairways, greens, and tees are sodded or seeded with choice grasses and watered.
