We also have been chipping debris around the course the past few weeks. It's amazing to me how much growth tends to grow over the course in a short amount of time.

Well it looks like the last week of the year is going to be cold and dry. The forecast through New Year's Day looks dry, so I'll recap this years rainfall. Year to date we have had 98" or 8' of rain. This past weekend we ended up with 5.2" and a total for the month of December of 13". The wettest months were January at 15.2",April at 10.1" July at 19.1" and December at 13". It rained 19 days in July . The driest months were May/September both at 3.6" and October at only 2". A drive around the course today greeted me with an abundance of raging water at our waterfalls. Also, a flock of turkey's were on the 14th approach.

This big oak had died over the summer and was a concern of mine that it might fall during golfing season. The entire center was hollow. If any one is interested in fire wood for the season, we have some for sale. This money will be used to buy the crew lunches.
This week we have been painting the trim on the club house. This is a huge savings to the club as we are using the golf maintenance staff. Also, we received a truck load of new trees to be installed around the club house grounds. These should all be installed by next week.

This week we have been pressure washing and waxing all of out turf equipment, getting it ready for a long winters nap. We take great pride in our mowers and want them to last a long time. Come spring time they are ready to mow grass. In the next few months we will be doing all oil changes as well as grinding the reels. More on that later.
