The start of a new year

As we enter 2011 we have had some great weather. The last two weeks of January have been dry and unusually warm, with many days seeing high temperatures in the 50's. This has allowed us to complete much needed rough mowing, among other maintenance practices. It looks like a golf course again!

We were recently informed of our successful recertification with the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program. The OGA Golf Course became certified with the ACSP in 2004 and we continue to maintain the course in an environmentally friendly manner.

February will be very busy for the maintenance staff. In addition to regular maintenance we plan to install irrigation heads in areas with limited coverage, add and redistribute bunker sand to provide consistent sand depths and begin constructing a new tee on #3.
