Winter Storms Continue

Winter has started off with a bang this year, literally.
On Tuesday morning one of the old Cypress trees behind the 1st green came down.

The ground has become so saturated with all of the recent rains that the old tree gave way. When it did, it fell on the back of the green causing significant damage.

There will be a temp green in play on the first hole until further notice as the tree crew finishes their work and we begin to repair the green.

Two of the large limbs punctured the green over 5 feet deep!

Rain totals for the season are just over 15" with over 11" falling in December alone. We are out mowing greens and tees today for the first time in a week. Bunkers are being repaired for the third time this week. It will may be quite sometime until we can get out and mow fairways or roughs without causing any damage to the turf.
