I created this blog to give the membership an insight to the Field Club maintenance department. We are a 'behind the scenes' operation, so this is intended to fill that void and inform you on what progress is being made on a daily to weekly basis.
MUD started draining the reservoir on Monday and it will continue to do so until early next week. They drain the reservoir every five years and go in with high pressure hoses to clean and inspect the structure. In the mean time, it leaves us with a beautiful pond left of #1 fairway. This has been discussed as a permanent water hazard and if we throw a fountain in there and landscape the edges...how pretty would that be?!
Today, we are planting a total of 7 new trees (3-Maple;2-Oak,2-Locust) on the golf course. They are in locations where trees previously were but have been removed due to storm damage or were near death. The locations were picked out by myself, Kevin and green & grounds committee and are placed with safety and play-ability in mind. You will find the new trees on:
#2 (tee and between #2/#11 fairway)
#8 (left of fairway and right of green)
#15 (left of fairway past the pot bunkers)
We will continue to prune/remove trees over the winter months, but the areas we've got cleaned up look great. Thanks for your continued support.
