Tuhaye Golf Club is located approximately 15 minutes east of Park City, UT nestled in a luxury golf community development with panoramic views of Jordanelle Reservoir and the world class ski area – Deer Valley. Lightweight ceramic aggregate was chosen for the renovation of the practice green and tee boxes.
Lightweight ceramic aggregate was considered as the solution to the compaction and drainage problems experienced with the current root zone soil. After discussions that included the superintendent and the golf pro, a root zone soil specifically designed for the location and application was agreed upon. The renovation was completed by the end of September of 2005; play on the renovated green and tee box began in the spring of 2006 with excellent results. Future plans include the addition of another 18 holes to be completed over the next few years.
