We utilize our 4 days of closure to perform tree maintenance around the golf course. This year we removed a dead pine between #1 and #9. Numerous cypress trees were pruned on #9, #10 and #17. We are now moving on to a few oak trees along #16 and will finish the week working on the oak trees in the parking lot next to the tennis courts.
We can't say enough about our mechanic Mario and what a great job he does. Another aeration with no major mechanical issues is significant for any operation.
If we want to be better this year we need to make changes in our program from the previous year. If we do the same thing every year and expect different results we will never reach our goals. We are confident the changes to our program this year will improve your experience on the golf course.
