Chipping brush

We spent most of the day chipping the brush that has been collected over the summer. This mulch will be returned to areas around the golf course or for homeowners use.

Just another awesome sunrise at sky valley.

New tee 15

We have started construction of the new tee on hole 15. This will be a maintenance tee and will only be open when we need to close one of the other tee boxes. As you know, this hole has limited teeing space, so having this new tee will help us grow in other tees faster.

Frigid weather

The recent cold front that came through left us with a low of -2*. It only stayed cold for a few days before things have thawed out. This week on the course we were able to mow greens and aprons and rake bunkers. This week we will be topdressing tees again as well as some of the wetter fairways. Next week we will topdress greens one more time. The healing process is looking great for this time of year and should be healed in by April.

Drainage work update

Drainage work has been completed on 1,3,16 approaches. As you can see in the photos below the soil that was on 3 approach was all clay. This was the reason the water would never drain through causing a very wet area. The area was excavated out and filled with gravel and pipe.
