#18 Weiskopf cart path repair

With all the rain we had in June and early July we had some erosion issues of the ravine in #18 which then extended to the cart path. Precision Golf Construction came in and did a great job akin these areas safe again.  They are a local company out of Chardon that have done some small projects for us and we are very happy with their work.  Here are some pictures.

Using pavers instead of concrete so when it settles, we can fix

More rip rap will be added to outfall area to prevent erosion

While Precision Golf was here, they also fixed #9 and #15  wash out as well

Member-Guest recap

We had a great time prepping for one of the biggest, if not the biggest Member-Guest events in the state of Ohio. We had 84 teams competing on both golf courses. The courses played firm and fast and the greens were scary quick. Congratulations to the winning father/son team of Tim and John Williams. The shootout was a lot of fun and very competitive. August 4th-6th next year will be here soon enough.

New chipping green area

Last September we stripped the area up by the practice bunker left of the cart barn driving range tee. We seeded and added plugs before winter and have been growing in the green ever since. The bunker is open and the green is getting very close to the heights of the other greens. We are currently mowing it at .160". The other greens on the course are at between .105 and .110". After aerating this fall it should be mowed down just like all the rest. There will be some small chipping areas around this green as well.
