JUST IN TIME FOR THE MEMBER - GUEST

Putting the finishing touches on the pump house landscaping, just in time for the men's member guest. 


It started raining right after I took this picture.  

roof has been seeded to a drought and heat tolerant grass and wild flower mix.   Doesn't look like much now but give it a few months.

3 YEARS IN THE MAKING

We are getting ready to put the finishing touches on our three year master plan. (new irrigation system, all new cart paths, and new pumps)  All that remains is the landscaping around our new pump station.  Sod is scheduled to arrive this week and most of the plant material is on site.  We are using all natives to complement our green roof.  The landscaping fits right in with our Environmental Policy.  More of this to follow when we do our plantings.  

None of this could have happened with out the help of our Greens and Grounds staff.   We have a pretty special group of guys that are here everyday getting the course in shape for your enjoyment.   I would like announce that Engel Medina just graduated from Bronx Community College with an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice.  Engel did this by attending night classes while working here during the day.   Congratulations Engel!!!!


Our 2014 Greens and Grounds staff.  
Congratulations Engel,  Job well done!!!

Special soil has been placed on the roof.  We will seed it next week with a wildflower native grass  mix.
