Tree Planting

A big thank you to the 41 Club for funding the planting of 15 new trees! #2 Tee, #7,#8,#9 Tee and #15 (protecting #14 Tee) is where you will see the new trees.  These fill voids where trees have been lost over the years and also give some color to the #9 Tee complex area with the addition of three flowering Crabs.  Thank you 41 Club members for all of your support!

Spring Core Aerification

Today we will be wrapping up the Greens aerification process.  As you can see from the images below, we used a smaller tine (1/4") on tight spacing (2").  By using the smaller tine, it will speed up the healing process and still give us the results we're looking for from an agronomic prospective.  Playability wise, the greens will be rolling quick and smooth come Wednesday.

#15 Rough

This winter we removed 8 Pine trees that sat between the cart path and Maples along #15 fairway.  Now that they are removed, we graded the area, seeded, fertilized and covered with a mat.  This cleans up the area and in the coming months, we'll have playable turf.  Please avoid this area until the ropes have been removed.  It will speed up the establishment as well.
Update- April 27,2015
After 2.5 weeks, here is what the area looks like now.  We have great germination going on under the matting and we're a few weeks away from it's first mowing.  HUGE difference!
