Grounds update

Last week Friday we completed the finishing touches on the new fairway bunker on 11.  To cap off the project, we took sod from the beginning of the 11th fairway and relocated it to the expanded fairway around the new bunker.  Next spring we will seed the beginning of the fairway into rough, shortening the fairway to coincide with the Master Plan.

With that large project behind us we are now focusing on other projects and tasks to close out the season, we have a heavy work load to complete before the snow flies.  This week is a shortened week and rain today that won't allow us on the course, but we are continuing to knock items off our to-do list. 

Monday was irrigation blow-out.  We also cut down the natural area behind the clubhouse. 

Yesterday we planted 6 trees on the course, picked up sticks from the recent high winds, blew out fresh water lines and mulched leaves. 
Our to-do list still contains - mulching leaves, repairing the bridge on 8/9, fertilizing fairways, spraying fungicides before the snow hits, trim the hedges on the range and 9 tee, winterize the water feature by the locker rooms, deep clean all the equipment and get Christmas lights up next week.
