Irrigation and construction update:

The current irrigation system has been put on hold because the bank has requested an appraisal of the property.  We are hoping to have that completed by Mid-December.   If we get the go ahead in December it will take 3 to 4 weeks to get equipment and supplies here.  Depending on the weather we will do as much as possible this winter - spring  and hopefully finish up in the fall.  I will keep you posted as things develop.  Obtaining pond permits and moving forward with cart paths have also been delayed.

The construction on holes 11 and 5 are really moving along and starting to take shape.  Things literally change by the hour.  We are playing number 5 from the 150 marker to allow the construction company the ability to work with out worrying about being hit with golf balls.  There has been a small change in the plans.  We are going to re-work the right hand green bunker instead of working the back left bunker.  This will keep the area of disturbance to a minimum and the right hand bunker holds water as well.  I will keep you posted as things develop.

Our major focus has been and will continue to be picking up leaves to keep the course as playable as possible.
