I ran into Kev changing cups after he and Will finished mowing tees and aprons and took a picture of the up turned plug. This demonstrates why we aerify. Notice the roots growing in the old holes.
|you can clearly see 3-4 sections of roots which are growing long in the air space created by aerifying.|
also today Island Timber started the second phase of tree work on the right side of the ninth hole. Two years ago some landowners pooled resources and removed a few oaks and topped a few trees to improve their view of the sound. They also planted a few cedars to protect the road from golf balls off the tee. We also gained an improvement in our view from 8 green. The next phase is in the same general area and we also gain a view of the pond and sound beyond from the 9th and putting green in this go around.

In the middle of this post I had to run to the boat and pick up a couple of special treats for this season. A little preview for the people reading the blog: I had the ball washer towels printed with a commemorative logo as well as a set of flags.
