Wow it has been a busy Spring, needless to say for the lack of new postings! We received 11 inches of rain in April. In May, another 9 inches fell. Since the end of May the faucet turned off and the turf had been growing vigorously. We successfully aerified all the greens. Eliminated the right fairway bunker on 1 and have sodded many areas around the course that needed repair.
Yardage markers have been installed thanks to the help of members Mr.Saunders,Mr. Kinstler,Mr.Palmer and and the dynamic duo of Mr. and Mrs. Sterzinger. Thank you to everyone for your hard work and dedication to your club.
We have seen of late, a migration of turtles onto the course. It appears that both snapping and painted have come out of the "lakelands" to the course to find spots for egg laying and burying. If you see these reptiles, don't fret, they are on a mission and know just what they are doing and where they are headed. We have begun adding sand to bunkers on 7 and 8 as well as the chipping green bunker.
