Maximizing Water Use and New Cart Path

Trees compete with grass for sunlight, water and nutrients, and the trees need to be maintained so that the turf is as good as it can be.

One of the things we are doing on the course is pruning tree roots.

One of the other projects in process is the change out of sprinkler heads on the range that will help conserve water.

Another project this week that is unrelated to water but I am sure will smooth out many of the bumps in your round of golf is the installation of the new cart path at the 5th hole.
