2013 was certainly a year full of changes to the golf course. Here is a brief overview of what took place this year. We started the year by enlarging #18 pond and adding sub surface drainage to hole #9 and the driving range. Next we focused on getting more turf under tree lines on holes # 1,3, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 & 16.
In early Spring we installed a series of "French" drains on #7 and #16 to relieve a chronic ground water issue. While we were installing the drain lines, a company came in to replace the broken curbing sections on #7 & #16 cart path. The same company corrected some curbing issues at the flag pole bed and constructed a drainage collection box by the south tennis courts.
In May a new rock wall feature was added to the tee boxes on #8 & #17. This replaced the old railroad ties that had become an eyesore and a safety hazard. The large open area near the pump station was graded out and sodded, along with a large rough area on hole #3.
The next 3 to 4 months were spent preparing for our new greens and successfully installing them. In addition, when we were shut down we were able to re-grass all or parts of 14 collars / fringes.
As we move in to December we will be finishing up the new practice bunker at the east end of the property. New drainage will be installed across hole #8 to allow the pond on hole #2 to overflow water to be piped underground and keep hole #8 drier and playable.
Every year we continue to improve the course and strive to give you a product you are proud of. My staff and I thank you all for your support. We are all looking forward to an exciting 2014.
My family and I wish you all the safest and happiest of holidays. Thank you all for the compliments and words of praise over the past year. Hope to see you soon at the club.
