Spring is in the air! What is that white stuff still doing on the ground?
|#18 fairway March 22nd|
I would like to thank my winter staff; Shannon Storey (Assistant Superintendent), Jim Lough (Spray Technician), and Jose Marcaida (Equipment Technician) for all of their hard work this winter. At the start of winter we were able to make some significant shop improvements. A new parts room was created, and our warm storage area was opened up to better facilitate equipment parking and repair. This group of employees have put in a tremendous amount of work in servicing, repairing and painting our equipment fleet to "like new condition", which will be ready to go this spring. Also their efforts are recognized in braving the freezing cold temperatures to remove the abundance of snow and keep our club house grounds open.
This March, 27 trees were removed from the property. These trees were in extremely poor health related to Imprelis injury. In April, 54 arborvitaes will also be removed and replaced at #14 tee, #16 tee, and #11 green. The greens committee continues to focus on all trees on the property, and are creating plans to plant new trees in areas of need at Forest Lake.
