IT'S GETTING LATE, EARLY !!

The start of the cart path on 18. 
To paraphrase Yogi Berra, It seems like the time is slipping by and old man winter is knocking on our door. The putting green expansion is 99% complete. We only need to sod some rough areas around the perimeter. The green came out great and I can't wait till next year when we get a chance to hit a few putts. In the mean time we will cover the new sod with a cover that will protect it from the winter and also keep people from walking across it. The pictures below tell the story.  

To update the cart path work. Today they are paving around the half way house and tomorrow they will finish #3 and continue down 17. We are running out of time. We still need to finish 16 and all of 15 and build a new road to our dump or compost area. I have my fingers crossed that the weather stays a little warmer for just a couple of more weeks so we can finish the paving. Once completed they will start adding soil around the edges and either sod or seed.
