Teeside Improvement

We have started the work around the teeside equipment this week.  Last week we did a test run on #10 to see the reaction from the membership and from our corporate office.  After some positive reviews we have been given the approval to proceed with the project.  We are now in the middle of the #1 project.


This project reduces the labor to just doing a simple edge along the outside rather than having a person weedeat the entire half moon each week.  If you have any comments please feel free to send away.

New Landscape

As we began the season we took the annual planting bed near the putting green and turned it into a more permanent planting.  We repurposed some of the rocks that we collected from the old landscape area off of #6 tee to give the area some appeal.

Dan spearheaded this project and has been wanting to do this project for quite some time.  I think he has done a great job pulling everything together and when we get are annual in he is planning on giving the area some flare.

If you have any comments about the new landscaping or the golf course please feel free to contact me.

Wildflowers

 This last winter we cleared out the area behind 7 green.  It was a group of trees with branches that were nearly down to the ground and was a dump area for many years.
We reclaimed the area and recently planted the area with wildflowers.  We are hoping to get some germination even though the area is heavily shaded. I will post an update later in the year if we do get some activity in the area.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me.

Indian Summer Field Trip

 This Friday we had a visit from Pope John Paul II Highschool.  They had a field trip to the course to learn about plants. It was a great trip I think I was able to open their eyes about golf course management.  They couldn't believe that the green was real grass and they had fun wondering the putting green looking for a place to pull their samples.  Their assignment was to sketch to different kinds of grass plants.

A special thanks to The First Green. They were able to connect the school with us. Also, I would like to thank their teacher Dick O'Conner.

Indian Summer Pictures

 Here are a few pictures of the course during the nice weather we had this last week.  The course is coming along as the season begins.  Unfortunately the weather did not hold for very long, but it was a nice stretch.
