The crew spent yesterday working on one of the more unglamorous jobs on the course. The pump for the tunnel needed to be installed. It had become clogged with silt and was repaired. Now we needed to clean out the mud and water so we could install the pump. This is usually a messy process but the guys got it done without a problem. Now the tunnel is ready for spring and should work like a charm.

We had our first snow of the season last night. Although the snow accumulation was pretty puny, at only half an inch, it did bring some much needed moisture. It's been very dry lately so we'll take whatever we can get. The next few days look to be pretty cold but the forecast is calling for a warm up after this weekend.

The crew wrapped up the chipping green bunker renovation this morning. We ran through this bunker relatively quickly because we didn't need to redesign anything or move any dirt. We simply scraped out the old sand and drainage and replaced it. Even though the bunker is finished, this green complex will remain closed until the green is ready to be opened. We are excited to get some good growing weather now, but we still need a few weeks in the spring to finish growing it in. We appreciate your patience during this time and look forward to having a high quality practice facility this spring.
We were blessed with some fog this morning and I couldn't wait to get out and shoot some pictures of the course. Fog is one of my favorite weather events that can happen on the course and always leaves me with some neat visuals. Here is are a few pictures from this morning.
