In addition to the bunker renovation, the turf staff has been completing small projects on the golf course that have included landscape bed cleanup, irrigation repairs, and fairway aeration. Even as the weather begins to turn colder, the turf staff will remain very busy. Soon, the native areas will be mowed down, birdhouses will be cleaned, irrigation system shutdown, and tree removal will begin. Roughly 80 trees have been identified for removal, all of which are dead or in severe decline. These trees are predominantly Ash, along with a few cherry, elm, and locust. Fall is a wonderful time on the course for our staff because it allows for us to break away from routine maintenance and focus on improvement projects throughout the course.
