It is said that a negative person has a problem for every solution. A very true and accurate statement. Sometimes a well meaning individual can become negative and present a problem for a solution. And, sometimes, the well meaning negative individual isn't even a person at all.
The evidence to back up this statement is happening right now at the site of our drainage project on #1 of the Lake Course. Assistant superintendent, Bill Peterson, began exploring the area and found that an existing drain tile had been completely plugged by well intended trees, causing the water to back up the drain line and create a fine mess that has grown to include part of the fairway. The row of evergreen trees has become a problem for the solution to the wet area that was remedied decades ago.
Bill is nearing completion of the project, but the well-intending, but negative, trees will have to be removed, bringing the more positive thought of there is a solution to every problem back into the picture.
