Here we are, close to the 2022 golf season.
Over the winter, we worked on three major projects. First you will notice a large rock for signage at the entrance. This will be new signage for CRCC that will feature a rock wall behind #17 tee box. The large rock will be sandblasted with our logo. To hold the stenciling for the sandblaster, we have to wait until the middle of June so the rock warms up to around 70°. As soon as the weather permits, I will finish the rock wall and prepare the area for landscaping, which should be planted around the middle of May.
We also dredged the pond on #11 this winter. We are making it deeper to help control the weeds. There should be a minimal amount of work to prepare this pond for the golf season.
The last major project we worked on this winter was dredging and enlarging the pond on hole #15. As soon as the ground firms up we can start this project. There will be approximately 120 feet of shoreline that will be rip wrapped with approximately three semi loads of rock. The surrounding area of the pond has dirt that was removed. Until the dirt dries completely it will be difficult to move. So I will be seeding it with ground cover to make it more presentable.
As time permits, I will be building a rock wall on the west side of #1 tee. My goal is to make it more welcoming for you all. My staff and I look forward to the beginning of a new season!
See you on the course!
