Course Conditions

We've taken control of the clover problem that affected many of the fairways earlier this spring. We're going to be making one more application of the fertilizer in the next couple weeks and hope to have the heaviest areas back to normal soon! As a result of the application, you'll notice the fairways are a bit yellow. That yellowing should go away by the end of the week.

This past weekend we aeriated and top-dressed the greens and also removed several tree stumps that remained after we cut down over 200 dead trees last Fall. Removing these stumps has greatly improved the look of the course and also provides room for the new trees that we planted last year.

You'll also notice the fresh look around the Clubhouse as Elfie has busy been painting the railings and wooden fences.

Overall the course looks great and we're excited and hope for a warm and dry Memorial weekend.

Great Idea

What a great idea Dave.

I hope that the many of our members get an opportunity to see/use this blog site. It will be a great communication tool for us.

I just know that when we owners get the old dead tree stumps and debris removed as of this coming weekend (that is if the weather will FINALLY cooperate.(we've cancelled this event 2x already)\ they will really be able to see the beauty of the course.

We have done a great job these last 3 full years working on improving not only the general landscaping, but aeration of greens, improvement of ponds (a never ending battle), replenishing of new trees/plants/bushes. Wow!! We will truly become beautiful soon.

We have several plans, just takes time and of course $$ to accomplish all the things we would like to do to our beloved GBGC.Look forward to comments. Ruth
