The interior of the ProShop has been stripped down to the studs and now BPCI is starting the build out.
The area of excavation was marked out at the front of the building. This is one of the areas that the building is being expanded.
Parts of the building were removed and excavation for the footings began.
I want to point out the quality of the lumber originally used in the structure. Check out the decking. It's double tongue and groove and about 3 inches thick. I don't imagine anyone could afford to build with lumber like that nowadays.
This is how it looked at the end of the day Friday. Excavation is complete and they're getting ready to set forms for pouring the foundation of the expansion. This area will be the new entrance to the ProShop and contain all the retail and the front counter. Pretty exciting stuff. It's going to look great. During the demolition phase I was hoping to find some interesting historical items but unfortunately nothing super significant surfaced........just a bunch of old golf balls.......
and this one document which is certainly interesting. It's a mint condition copy of the golf course rules as printed in 1961. Check it out.
Times have changed. I can't imagine what it was like to close portions of the course for watering.
