Preparing for the winter

Yesterday we blew out the irrigation system, part of of our annual preparations for the coming winter.

We cycle through the entire system twice, removing as much water from the lines as possible.  Today, the 15th hole bathrooms, pool house bathrooms and tennis court's irrigation will be blown out.
Effective tomorrow, the course will be closed for the season.  A cold front moves through the area today, dropping the temperatures significantly.
On Wednesday we will be taking the pins out of the greens and placing cups in select approaches to allow for play during the winter months if you get the urge to walk a few holes.  While the course may be closed, we will remain quite busy through the winter out on the course, finishing leaf clean-up, building a new tee on #7, along with trimming and removing trees.
