We found this girl standing in the pond on 17. She was happily grazing on the pond lilies.

The photo was taken by Thom Irvin.

Another lashing by Mother Nature. She is not a fan of golf the last two years.

Our challenge is cleaning up. We cannot even begin our normal course maintenance routine until each surface has been cleared of debris.

We are up to her challenge. 52 MPH winds, lightening and 0.42" of rain seems like old-hat to us now.

We are installing a major drain across 18 fairway to a sump in front of #1 tee. This drainage project will allow us to properly drain the new tees and practice green this fall. Accomplishing the major drain now allows us to be completed on the fairway surface which will be seeded on August 15.

We continue to add wildflower mix to the wooded areas. And our efforts are starting to show!

This year we expanded our program. We expect a better "show" each year.
