A view of the 17th green in 2005. Where is the clubhouse?

If you were standing on the 17th fairway back in the day, this is what you would be looking at. The 10th green is only 25 yards to the left but it is hidden by the abundance of arbors.  Since then many Spruce and Pine trees have been removed to help produce healthier turf. Double click the picture to get an expanded view. An added feature of the tree removals would be the beautiful views of the golf course.

The topdressing process continues.

This is our #13th fairway after being topdressed with sand. Our target rate is between 17 to 20 tons per acre. This fairway is a little larger than an acre an approximately 20 tons of sand was applied.

A wet but mild day has us out on the golf course.

We know that most of the winter the weather will be too cold to work outside. Our staff took this opportunity during this 50 degree, sunny day to cut down some of the ornamental grasses on the golf course. By cutting back these plants it will allow easier regrowth in the spring.
