New batch of split oak

The temps are going above 18 degrees today......time to get outside.

It may be bitterly cold but there still is work to do on the golf course. Jerry Stockmal is making a cut at the base of a Dawn Redwood at the right side of the 4th fairway. The yellow line you see is the rope to help guide the tree to fall where we would like it.
This is a view from the 3rd fairway looking across #15 tee towards the 4th fairway. You may notice the Spruce is missing that was on the other side of the bridge.

Working right to the beginning of the storm.

WVCC grounds crew in the process of installing sod even as the bulk of the snow storm approaches. It is actually easier to install sod while the ground is frozen now rather than trying after the snow melts and the conditions are sloppy. Asst.supt Jim Dennison backs up the tractor while John Fleming guides him back.

Bunker work is progressing even during bad weather.

Everyone knows about the bad weather we have had since Christmas. There have been a few days where  work was completed on the bunker project. These two pictures show the final shape and drainage for the left side bunkers at #10 green. The sod pictured in above was just installed after a month of being rolled up. It is a little off color now but should turn to it's normal color in the spring.
