Some good news!!!  We are opening up the fourteenth green for play tomorrow.

I asked Adam Moeller, Turf Agronomist for the USGA to come do a site visit and give me his opinion on how we have handled the harsh winter.  We toured the course with Green Chairman, Tom Torpey and Club President Al Leotta.   Adam feels, (and I agree) that although not perfect the seed has matured enough to handle play.    We have a long summer to get through and all three damaged greens will contine to be pampered but it is nice to have all 18 greens open for play.

I am happy with the progress we have made.  We got a great catch with the seed and it is starting to pay dividends.

10 and 15 are also doing better:   ( Mr. Mattana made the putt for his first birdie of the year!!)  

We started our green roof on our pump house today.   Here is Owel showing the Drainage material that goes on top of the rubber membrane.  He and Chico are spreading the special growing material.
