A WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE

I was talking to one of our long time members and we found our selves reminiscing about the good old days.  We started discussing all the changes that have been made to the course over the years.  So I went and looked at some of my old pictures that I had taken when I first started (that was 18 years ago--time flys when your having fun)  The following is what I could come up with.  The before pictures are a little fuzzy but I think you will agree "we've come a long way baby"

Hit the Enter button on your computer to advance the pictures.   I hope you enjoy our trip down memory lane.

MID-JANUARY

I saw these birds the other day and could not help but snap a couple of pictures.  I have never seen a Blue Bird in the middle of winter before.  After I talked to my bird expert they are considered a resident around these parts. But still considered some what rare.   Also a couple of eastern Towhee's were in the tree branches between 11 and 13 tees.  

We are taking advantage of some warmer days and moving a couple of trees that are getting too big in front of the 14th. championship tee.  


A Eastern Towhee. (at first I thought he was a Robin )    
A couple of nice blue birds on #6.  There colors are awesome!! 



moving a couple of trees that have become over grown in front of the 14th black tee.  




This Hydrangea is blocking the view from the tee and will be re-located.

2014 HERE WE COME

2014 is starting out a with some rough weather.   The good news is that this cold snap is not supposed to last more than a day or two and by the end of the week we should have more normal temps.  Until then we will keep painting tee markers and sharpening mowers.

Don't forget our feathered friends.  I completely recommend  placing a bird feeder where you can see it from a popular window.  I find myself looking at all the different kinds of birds and realizing that nature is quite amazing.   




I took these pictures just when it was cold enough for the snow to stick to the greens and fairways. The golf course can still  be very beautiful this time of year.





Just a reminder:   Holes 1 through 9 are open, plus 10, 11, and 18.   All on temporary greens and mats on tees.
