Rain Rain Rain

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and was able to eat all the turkey and mashed potatoes that you could! It wasn't the most ideal weather to spend time outside with rainfall totaling just over three inches. That being said, most of the bunkers have been washed out. It has taken a few days but we were able to push and rake the bunkers to try and dry them out a little bit. This is also the time of year when we begin tree cleanup. At times it can be tricky on deciding what trees to take out and what trees to leave. There are many factors that come in play when selecting a tree for removal. Overall turf health, tree health, location and playability are just a few of them. You might also notice that we will be taking around a pole saw and limbing up a little ways to raise the canopy. In doing so it will allow us to better maintain these areas and give the course a cleaner look. As you can see from the pictures we started on the second hole. Our main goal was to push the tree line on the right side back just a little bit for easier mowing.
