During the fall of 2021, the Columbia County Public Works Department began constructing a new irrigation reservoir between holes No. 2 and 3, near the tee blocks on hole No. 3 at the Touchet Valley Golf Course. Using excavated material to backfill the Touchet River levee along hole No. 2, they created a gentle slope to the top of the levee and constructed a new tee block on hole No. 3.

DAYTON-In 2019, Touchet Valley Golf and Recreation (TVGR), formerly known as the Dayton Country Club, created an aggressive five-year strategic plan for the golf course. The plan includes partnering with multiple organizations to fund and construct an underground irrigation system and potentially expand the existing golf course.

The Underground Sprinkler System Installation project consists of planning and fundraising, irrigation reservoir construction, and underground sprinkler system installation. A multiple property owner issue has been a stumbling block for the project in the past.
