Thanks to Dennis Grover who has been busy up here today doing some painting – you are AWESOME!!!!

Thanks to Dave Anderson who comes up here every Friday to rake the bunkers – you too are AWESOME!!!!

You will notice beside the Ladies 13th Tee the large Macrocarpa tree has lifted some distance out of the ground, by the looks of it, It looks half dead, there are some warning signs up to let all playing golfers know of the Danger of a Falling Tree, the tree beside it, is also of some concern as that also is on a lean and in the direct falling path of the uplifted tree – Please everyone take caution when in the area, the green-keepers have sectioned the area off with ropes, until they have the equipment and dry weather to cut the tree down.
