#3 Green - First priority
for shoreline stabilization
Denise's Corner
Season Wrap-up  

Just when you think you can't do another day, along comes November. When you take out a few of the negatives this season such as a rookie high school and college staff, a flood, the course closure for two weeks, and over seeding about five acres lost to the flood, it's been a pretty good year! Temperatures were tolerable for most of the summer; fairways and greens looked pretty good, and how about the Elephant Ears planted at the Pro Shop! Just to let you know, we dug them out so we can try to replant them for next year.

WBK Engineering started its work on the shoreline stabilization project. The pink flags along the shoreline are the wetland delineation. Step two is a field survey. Once the data is collected, a concept plan of costs, construction, permitting and maintenance is developed. That portion is planned to be completed by mid-December with a Board presentation in January. If all goes well, there is a possibility we can start stabilization in the fall of 2018. Stabilizing the golf course shoreline is going to take a lot of money and time. With significant erosion from this last flood, its evident we need to act as soon as possible. This project will preserve the integrity of our golf course and improve and enhance our shoreline. Our first priority is the front of #3 green. Concept plans will be on display next spring in the Pro Shop.

We are going to blow out the irrigation system on November 15, spray for snow mold on November 20, and tarp greens 3, 4, and 6 at the forecast of the first snow.

On behalf of the grounds staff we would like to say thank you for your patience during the flood renovation. Your support during the recovery was very much appreciated. We're so lucky to be able to work for such caring golfers. We wish you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you in 2018!
