With the spring growth underway the course is looking great. The greens and fairways renovations with the help from Mother Nature are coming along perfectly. Now it is up to use to ensure we keep the good work going. Repair you divots and also your pitch marks on the green. See the photo supplied by a member regarding "course care"... I don't think they did the cross stitch but I maybe wrong.
