Staff has been utilizing a goose dog since December 10, 2019 to thin the geese population and reduce the number of nests on site. By allowing Jack to do his job there has been an elimination of goose fesses on the greens and other high traffic areas.
Sod was laid in the fairways to eliminate bare spots. Sodding and sprigging in the fairways will be an ongoing process.
The rough was over-seeded to define the fairways and give a more consistent turf. Then staff reduced the height of the rough to be the same cut as at Tex Consolver and Arthur B. Sim. This will be an ongoing process.
The third fairway was moved farther to the east to eliminate golfers teeing off hitting into the driving range area and to make the hole more playable.
Some tee boxes were enlarged. This was done to help spread out the wear on the turf.
New ladies tees were added on holes 3, 5, 14, 15, and 16. These additions shorten the holes to make these par 4’s more playable an enjoyable for the golfer.
Collar (or fringe areas) were enlarged on 15 of the holes to increase playability around the greens.
Blue tees were added on holes 2, 9, 10, and 18 to enhance the challenge for skilled golfers.
