I love these late 'squeeze them in' projects.  We were able to install a drain on #14 Heritage last week.  This has been on the table for many years but we could never find the time to complete it until now!
This should help dramatically during the spring melt.  We are really looking forward to seeing this drain in action in 4-5 months.
It is Official both courses have been put to bed for the winter.  Everything that we can do was completed with success!!  It is now up to Mother Nature to be kind to us :)
Between the rain, wind, late leaf fall, snow and heavy frost days this fall it has been the most challenging of my career to get everything completed, but with some good help from quality staffers we got it done!!

We had an opportunity to take the Superior Hills Third grade class over to Greywalls so they could learn some hand-on Geology.  The kids had a wonderful time enjoying the beautiful natural landscape of the golf course.  

The old clubhouse deck has been removed.  The early arrival of winter put a hold on this project so the construction will be completed in the spring.
We have started the painting and refurbishing of the course supplies and signs, always a good job when you need to get out of the weather.
Our friend Porky came by a couple weeks ago over at the GW shop.  He see him a couple of days a week.
