Thanks KRB !!!!

Thanks KRB !!!!

   I bet you are asking who or what is KRB?    It  stands for Keep Rockland Beautiful.  They must have been cleaning 9W  next to our entrance.   I noticed there garbage bags earlier this week with there stickers.  They are a great organization, that has helped clean our county's roads, parks and water ways.  Thanks KRB. 

I have gotten a few questions regarding our paths.  A few areas were done when the asphalt was too cold.  This is why they are "crumbling" in a few locations.  The contractor has been made aware of this and will come back on a Monday and fix the problem.  They also have to fix the areas where extra Belgium block was installed on 8 and 14 turn arounds. 

The staff taking a training class with our new greens mowers. 

We just accepted delivery of our new hand green mowers.  Our old mowers were in need of repairs. These new mowers will help keep our green speeds up by improving the quality of cut.  They are also electric which helps with emissions and noise. 

Putting green is taking shape. 

The putting green is taking shape.  We will be aerifying, top-dressing, and seeding weak areas this Monday.   I am expecting to open it for play on Saturday May 18th. 

Finally:  Don't forget our annual Bird Watch is Saturday May 11th.  If your interested, Mr. Drew Ciganek will once again be helping us Identify all the different species we have.  Meet us at the maintenance facility at 7:00 am if you would like to join us or just grab a bird inventory form in the pro-shop and write down the birds you see while golfing.
