COURSE UPDATE:

We have some winter damage on a few of the greens.   It is hard to tell exactly how extensive the damage is.  We need some warm weather to get the grass growing.   In the mean time we are going to keep 14 green covered. 15 and 10 will remain temporaries until we feel comfortable that they can handle the traffic.  We will also be aerifing, seeding and applying a very light amount of fertilizer.  Mother nature still holds all the cards and she is hard to fool.   It seems to be very similiar to three years ago.   If interested go back and look at the posts made to this blog in March and April of 2011.

Work on the pump house is moving along.  The pumps are now connected to the system.  We started enlarging the tees (15-11-2)  last Saturday.

I am glad to say that most of our staff has returned for another year.  We have been busy getting the course cleaned up and ready for play.

Hooking up the new pumps to the existing system.   What would a spring be like with out a little mud amongst friends!!
