TURTLE LIKE PROGRESS

Remember it’s the turtle that won the race.  It seems every week we are hampered by some kind of rain event.  This past week was no exception.  Just as we were ready for sod the rains came.  But we have kept a steady “turtle like” progressive attitude and it is paying off.  We have scheduled a sod delivery for Monday.  (They got rained out also).   That should sod most of the area by five green.  We will follow that up with a load later in the week and that should do it.  Only thing left is installing the sand and they may start that today.  

We have started removing invasive weeds in the native area on 14. Invasive weeds have become a big problem and we don’t want them to expand any more than they already have. We have found that the best way to remove them is to just dig them up. The area will be seeded with a native mix of wild flower seed. The low area will be filled with bog type plants that can handle wet feet. More info on this to follow.
There may be some exciting news regarding the irrigation system. The club is very close in securing the bank loan and signing the Contract with our Irrigation Contractor John Leibold. Work may start next month weather permitting. (The turtle keeps on going)
