This past winter the maintenance crew has focused on in-house tree pruning projects. The relatively dry winter allowed the crew to complete a considerable amount of work over the past several months. The results are visually apparent and have made the golf course aesthetically more appealing. Removal of three large cypress trees behind the first green was a top priority as the amount of shade it created on the back of the green created undesirable growing conditions during the winter months. The #1 green has been the weakest green on the course in regards to health and it should perform much better due to having sunlight all day long. Clicking on the above pictures to “zoom-in” enhances the difference that the pruning has created. Results will lead to improved growing conditions in the rough along with increased sunlight and better air movement.
