So Close

The title of this blog tells the story of several events that have taken place recently. The snow storm that hit this week was so close to dumping snow on us. Fortunately, we stayed clear of the wrath. But, if it had hit, we would have burned the last of the brush. We will have to wait until green up before that happens now. We may remove it from site or leave it until later. It all depends upon the weather and work load. So close to finishing that project.

We got real close to finishing all of the tree work. There is one oak left of 4 green that will have to wait until next winter. There is a chance that it could fall on the green. With it being soft, even if it does miss the green, a good chance there will be significant holes made. Waiting is our best option. So close again.

We are currently having Cal Haines do the hanging branch removal from several of the trees. These broken branches occurred over the past few storms. When they are on the ground and we will clean them up.
This is the tree behind #1.

Cal is also doing the trimming of several trees along 11. His bucket truck is very turf friendly and is not making any tracks. Now standing on the the 11th tee gives one a feeling of openness.
We will begin the final clean up next week. I have the baseball team out here on Monday for a few hours and on Tuesday I have some "Senior Muscle" coming out to lend a hand. Cal will also start stump grinding. This years project won't be near as big as last year. I'm thinking there are less than 50 to eliminate. The course accessories will come out of storage and after some cleaning and painting, they will be distributed accordingly. We will blow and mow greens, tees, and collars and then be ready to open. Yes, we are so close!
