A large part of our time is being devoted to prep for the Member-Guest which starts tomorrow morning. One set of "boys" are out trimming ponds, ditches, trees, etc. while the other set is edging bunkers and irrigation heads.
Assistant superintendent Bill Peterson has renovated and drained bunkers on #1 Lake Course green and #1 Hill Course green and is currently working hard to have the bunker at #13 Hill green in play by Friday's round of the Member-Guest scheduled to be played on the Hill Course. This bunker wasn't a chronic drainage problem but was loaded with stones and which were rough on golf clubs while in the bunker and greensmowers after they made it to the putting surface.
The mowing schedule gets stepped up a little for most touirnaments and the Member-Guest is no different. Tees, aprons and fairways all get 2-3 extra mowings during the week and greens are double cut and rolled during the tournament.
Good luck to all participants!
