The GCM staff these past few weeks have been working on raising tree canopies, as well as removing dead and unsightly trees. Our past greens committee meeting we decided to move 2 maples from the right of #12 fairway. We moved the two maples, as well as two crepe myrtles from the putting green bed over to #1. We are going to replace the PG bed with an annual flower bed to bring more color onto the course this spring.
I have had several questions regarding tree canopies on #13, #14, and #15. We raised these canopies to get more sunlight to the underlying rough, and to produce a better playing surface. If you have ever been in these areas, you can attest that they are usually weak areas. Our goal is to plant along #13 and #14 tree line and to have a more uniform hedge row that is not filled with vines and thorns, and will also provide a screen for the golf course.
We built and placed a new divot bottle holder in the tunnel that was needed, feel free to stop and refill when you make the turn!
