The Latest Happenings

Thus far this winter we have removed a total of about 15 dead trees from several locations around the course.

Along with tree removal projects we have also been busy with continuing to make improvements to areas with drainage issues.

Drainage Improvement and Fairway Recontouring

The following photos are of the completion of the drainage project at the notorious wet spot on the left on #1 fairway.  The completion of this project also included the addition of 24 yards of topsoil, finish grading the entire area and the re-establishment of the original fairway line.  We plan to enjoy taking some weeks off from push mowing this area next season!  We hope this upgraded area will improve your round as well!

Drainage Projects

Over the last couple weeks the Stillmeadow Turf and Maintenance team has been making a big push to accomplish a few different drainage projects around the course.  These areas have been difficult as natural springs have been discovered.  We may find that additional drainage needs to be installed in these areas to get the most ideal results.  However, we should see an immediate improvement and in every area a new plan of action has been implemented that has never been tried before.
