Damage to #7 green

 Some worthless punk(s) went to town with a golf club on #7 green late afternoon/early evening on Friday. The damage was repaired early Saturday morning before play and most will recover. Some of the repairs(mainly the deep hole) will most likely have to be transplanted from the edge of the green because of a lack of viable turf remaining. We appreciate any help with identifying the culprit(s) or information of people loitering around the green on #7 late on Friday. 

Some quality people out there......

Repaired Saturday morning, sanded and trying to keep hydrated

And on Saturday night we had a shopping spree on #3 green, bunker and lake.....

Around the grounds...... February & March

With the course aerification now complete, the weather getting better each day and our season just getting ramped up, we are still getting a ton of course care issues(or lack thereof). The amount of unfixed ball marks on greens is still at an all time high, full sized healthy intact divots in the fairways that if put back will actually start rooting and recover faster than seed/sand mix, and bunkers not being raked after use.

This morning on #3 green.....  30+ unfixed ballmarks 

Divots unfixed in fairways

Some needed repairs on our irrigation control box on #18 fairway....a transformer had to be replaced and some re-wiring had to be done.

The storm that rolled through the course on Tuesday gave us .4" of glorious much needed moisture........ and some photo ops!

Pot O' Gold looks to be in the cup on #2 green......

Light "Dusting" on greens finished today to fill and smooth remaining indentions left from aerification 26 days ago......

Hydraulic fluid leak on our greens roller....... unfortunately it was a tiny leak that's hard to spot and wasn't discovered until 8 greens were rolled.
