Prepping for the Upcoming Season

Not a lot to report on this time of year. We are busy repairing and staining all 72 tee benches when the weather keeps us off the courses, and mowing whenever we can. We had one inch of rain last night and mowed greens this morning. There’s not a lot of courses around here that […]
