Well it hasn’t been a terrible winter that’s for sure! Welcome back everyone!
Just a quick update from the Turfcare Department. Things are going fantastic in preparation for another great season. We have had snow cover for pretty much the entire winter. This is good for the golf course and we will start seeing glimpses of turf soon. As soon as we do I will let everyone know how things are looking going forward.
Sonia and staff have been plugging away on black knot again this winter and I think we are really starting to get ahead of the game. In doing so we have also cleaned up piles and piles of dead fall and cleared up some of the areas on the edges of the course which will promote better growth, not to mention speed up play. We would like to welcome a new staff member Jim Brennan hired as Assistant Horticulturist. Jim brings a wealth of knowledge and will be a great addition to our already strong team. He is a avid bird watcher and we look forward to some new birdhouse construction including bat houses.
Rod has the majority of the equipment ready to go again and we are itching to get out and put it to use.
The new Turfcare Facility is really starting to take shape and we are very excited and looking forward to moving into the new facility.
Think sunshine and we will keep everyone posted as soon as we get rid of a little more snow.
