Two feet of clay material were placed and then compacted down to one foot to create this critical cap. As CourseCo prepared for construction, the first of several problems arose. The initial estimates of the amount of material brought from the estuary turned out to be flawed. It was thought that around , cubic yards of sand material would be available for the course, but only , cubic yards were on site.

The top priority for the port was to make sure that the capping and closure of the landfill was completed to the satisfaction of the EPA. When CourseCo began construction in , only 30 acres were ready to work on. The port had to provide more material for capping and for shaping to satisfy their end. This caused a series of delays and the port also needed a new contractor to complete the initial work. It took three years to build the course, and throughout the project a host of problems confronted the construction team. Because the cap layer was so thin in places, laying out drainage and irrigation so as not to interfere with each other dictated careful planning.
Builders had to figure out how to grow grass on soil of high salt and sodium content.
The course is planted with perennial rye fairways and Dominant Extreme bentgrass for the greens. During the grow-in process the trick has been to water the course heavily enough to leach out the salts while maintaining a good growing medium.
More than 20 miles of subsurface drainage lines were installed to manage the flushing phase and ensure dry, firm turf in all seasons. To add to the salty challenge, the course uses reclaimed water for irrigation as well as some well water. But even with these costs, it was significantly less than if the Port of Oakland had to haul the dredged material away.
Now, nine years after losing their local course, Oakland residents can return to golf on this revamped Galbraith location, even though few will understand how intricate a project the creation of the Metropolitan Golf Links actually was. The city now has a first-class golf venue available to them at affordable rates. But Davies said CourseCo and the crews at Metro will thrive on the satisfaction of surmounting the numerous challenges in order to bring back a golf course that will truly be an integral part of the community.

Junk started in the seed business in with Seed Corp. YUMA, Ariz. Good price. Not walkable unless that is what you really want a hard walk.
