HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM THE GREENS AND GROUNDS CREW

Small catch basin to catch runoff from the left side of 14.

Happy holidays everyone.   We are getting close to wrapping up another year.   I have to say it is nice not having any major construction projects this winter.   It has given us some time to focus on some of the details.   We added a catch basin next to the 16th tee.   This will slow down runoff from the left side of 14. Helping protect water quality in the Sparkill Creek.









Finishing up laying some sod by the cart paths.  
We had just enough warm weather last week to get a sod delivery. We finished laying sod adjacent to some of our cart paths.

















fixing the path from 7 fairway to the 9th tee.

 We dug out the dirt path that leads from 7 fairway to the 9th tee and added gravel to make a firm base.   We then topped with mulch.  The gravel also holds the mulch from washing away during heavy rains.















the finished product.   A nice path.



























Mr. Brosnan and Dr. Chee Kim getting in what may be the last round of 2014.  It's not cold!!!!

IT'S GETTING LATE - EARLY

Although winter has not officially started it is certainly cold enough.  I am happy to report that we have been able to get the golf course ready for it's winter hibernation.  All cold weather fungicides have been applied.  All Fertilization has been completed and Just yesterday we were able to finish up top-dressing the greens.   (of course Leaves have also kept us busy).  
Ted top -dressing our nursery,  the last one!!

I want to thank Carmen for decorating the front entrance.
Just another example of using the courses natural beauty.
