Last Tuesday following the 2nd round of the ladies member/quest the course was closed for the 1st of 3 herbicide applications. The elimination of the existing grasses throughout the course is extremely important to the overall success of the project. As with any application of this size there are always areas that are missed. There are also areas of the existing turf that are more resistant to the herbicide than others. For this reason a follow up application (spot treatment) will be taking place Wednesday afternoon following the clearing of the afternoon shotgun. The signage notifying the membership will be placed throughout the course warning of the application. This process should only take staff a couple of hours to complete and the golf course will be open normal hours the following morning. The second full application is scheduled to take place following the morning shotgun on April 11th. The golf course will remain closed the following morning allowing staff to complete the application if needed. Should inclement weather prevent the application on April 11th, the golf course will be closed the entire day on April 12th.

The additional work space for the new grinder and mechanics work area is now complete. The new steel I-beam was delivered Thursday and installed by the staff. The improvements add much needed space for the mechanics. Overall, very satisfied with how the project turned out.

The new Bernhard 4000DX reel grinder was delivered late last week. This unit is a little bigger than one it is replacing so to accommodate the larger size some changes needed to be made to the mechanics work area. A new wall was framed and installed approximately 5 feet from the existing wall. Once completed the old wall was removed, this added approximately 50 sqft of work area. The steel i-beam that is used to mount the winch had to be replaced with a longer one which should be arriving by Wednesday this week. Once the i-beam is in place the project will be completed.
