Just before the end of the year we began a big project on the 14th hole. The overgrowth along the right side of the hole has been a topic for years. Shot selection has been greatly reduced, many golf balls lost, and turf quality has declined. This area stays in the shade and has very little air movement. The quality of the turf along the right side of the fairway and on the green has been compromised for years. By eliminating and trimming this area the quality of the turf will improve and the original shot selection Donald Ross intended will be restored. We will be working here for the majority of the winter. Some of the larger trees that we cannot take down safely will need to be removed by a professional tree service.
