It's been a busy week for Jay and his greens team. Most notably the ongoing developments of the new Short Game Practice Area. With the arrival of the new bunker sand and some mowing to start creating some definition, we are getting close to the official grand opening.
Tree felling and root removal have also been on the agenda. The removal of the monster fir tree behind 2nd green has been discussed for a substantial length of time now. Finally the tree that only served to cast an enormous shadow over the green, hindering growth in the summer and preventing the thawing of frost in the winter, as well as its high acidity levels infecting the surrounding grass areas. We should start to see an improvement to the ground quality and appearance to the course in the vicinity.
Further improvements to the course will soon be seen due to the Club's investment in a brand new Greens Mower. The John Deere machine will be put into action within the next couple of weeks, once we start to see significant grass growth on the putting surfaces.
