What's Happening

Despite the nasty weather we've been very productive on the course.  The following is a summary of some of our efforts....
  • installing 12 new hose connections on tee boxes
    • This will make hand watering much easier
  • removing bermuda grass from the bentgrass collars
    • This is a big help in keeping greens consistent.  We used bentgrass from the spare tee on 6 to make the repairs
  • removing the bunker on the left side of 17
    • This will save maintenance and time without changing the way the hole plays.  We will be taking the soil from the spare tee on 6 to fill in the bunker.  Sod will be installed over the spare tee on 6 and the bunker on 17. 

  • installing curbing at the first tee
    • This will help us keep carts from parking on the tee slope
      and thus prevent goosegrass from taking overWe will put new sod down around the tees on this hole. 
  • removing many dead trees
    • This is never ending 
  • installing valves in irrigation lines at all bridges
    • This will save us lots of money when winterizing
  • removing of winter weeds from the zoysia
    • This involves spraying round up on about 40 acres
  • installing a 5000 sq. ft. vegetable garden
    • This is located between the ninth hole and the practice facility.  It will provide fresh vegetables to the Harbor Club during the summer and fall.
