May has been a very busy month for the maintenance staff. The tournament season has begun and we still face the challenge of the wet weather. We have completed all of our cultural practices and a few projects. A new white tee was constructed on #3 to help increase pace of play. This tee is approximately 20x30 feet and consists of 80 yards of sandy loam and 30 yards of sand. It will open for play in about two weeks. We have also installed tee markers for a short course. This new set of markers will play around 3200 yards and should be a great addition for both junior and beginner golfers.

Every Spring the arrival of ducklings are scattered throughout the golf course. We found that the new desired location for nesting is in the middle of our ornamental grasses!
