Golf Course Update

The rain continues to fall in the Ohio Valley, it has slowed our progress slightly with over 4.3 inches for the month thus far, but we have been moving forward with the tree management program, wall restoration on #6, reshaping of the 15th tee and various repairs and maintenance to the equipment and course accessories in the shop.
Overall, the golf course and the grounds of Hyde Park have weathered the deluges of rain quite well. The infrastructure of drain lines that were added during the bunker renovation in 2005 is moving the water effectively off- site. Many existing problematic areas on the fairways, rough and greens are being documented for future drainage improvements.

Some of our top priorities on our winter list include:

-16th tee reshaping and leveling
-The addition of a second forward tee across the fairway (approximately 117yds from the green.)
-Wall Restoration Project
-Non- Selective herbicide treatments to winter annual weeds in the Zoysia
-Mapping of Bermuda grass contamination in the roughs and fairways

We are hopeful the weather will start to turn slightly colder and drier to get some solid ground to continue with the agenda.
