Course Update - May 24
The landscape plantings on holes #4 and #5 have been completed and look great. We have also completed the wetland flyover plantings on holes #1, 5, and 12 and planted about 30 plants on the #18 tee wetland flyover.
With all of the rainfall we have received in May, we have had to fix many wash-out areas along lake and wetland areas. We have taken delivery of over 30 yards of rip-rap rock to fix the bad wash out areas.
We were scheduled to core tees this week but were unable to finish the coring. We cored the front 9 tees and #10 and will try to finish the tee coring the week of June 4-8, the week we are closed to core greens and fairways.
The 14.3 inches of rain we have had in May is above and beyond anything we have had in the past 21 years. Our gauge on hole #11 had a reading of 14.9; this is six inches higher than I have ever recorded in the past 21 years.
There is a tropical depression over Cuba that is forecasted to move north into the Gulf of Mexico in the next day or two. This system is forecasted to bring us more unneeded rainfall this weekend…..
