Pros playing in the U.S. Senior Open this week at Sacramento’s Del Paso Country Club, looking east earlier this month, will have well-watered greens.

In 2004, the course underwent a $13 million redesign and renovation that included capping the fairways with sand that allows water to percolate through the soil more efficiently.
