Bridge Work Update

Bridges have been, and will continue to be, a focus of effort until they are completely cleaned, stained, and repaired.  If you've played recently you may have noticed the work which is very labor intensive and time consuming.  Trying to do it in a way that doesn't interfere with play is tricky at best.  As I write this update the bridges at 6, 7, 8, 9, and 18 have been cleaned and are soon to be stained (hopefully today).  The bridge at 10 has been completed and the bridges at 2, 4, 12, 16, and 17 will be done as weather and golf schedules allow.  We'll be making some board replacements as needed during the course of the fall and winter.  For the record we have 1,100 linear feet of bridges.  This is 11,000 square feet (1/4 acre) of bridge deck not including the railings.  The lumber is a true 3" x 8" x 10' and does not come cheap.  Structurally the bridges are very sound, but cosmetically there is some obvious work to be done.  We'll continue to work on them until completed and try our best not to disturb play. 
Thanks for your patience and cooperation during this project.
