November 2007

From the Golf Course

The weather the last 2 weeks has been tremendous and we have been very busy working on our major construction projects.

On the North Course, the crew will have all of the irrigation installation on the back 9 holes completed by the end of this week. Over the next 2 weeks, they will be removing old heads and finishing the irrigation control system. This has been quite an undertaking and they have done an excellent job.

By the end of this week on the South Course, we will have installed all of the concrete on the asphalt paths that we slated for replacement. The crew will be doing restoration work along those new cart path edges and doing work where the concrete trucks were moving in and out of the golf course. We have been very fortunate to have had nice dry and warm weather to wrap up these projects.

In December will be trimming trees on both courses. We will also be applying winter snow mold fungicides, additional winter topdressing, installing greens covers and starting to plan for next year's golf season. By mid-winter we hope to have added a golf course maintenance section to the Club's web site where you can see some of our strategies for next year's maintenance.
