Vandalism to 15 Green

Yesterday morning we came in to work to find severe damage from 4 wheelers on hole number 15.  This damage occurred on our fairway and rough but was most severe on our putting surface.

Seeing something like this happen to your facility is very disheartening to everyone who works so hard to make our course the place that it is and to all of you that come to play our beautiful course.  We have reached out to the local law enforcement and hopefully these individuals will be caught.

In the mean time, I just want to say how proud I am of our staff in the way that they stepped up to repair the damage to our green.  Normally on Friday our schedule is to mow and go around noon.  Our crew did not hesitate or waiver from the task in front of them and they had the green back open for play by the end of the day.  I was blown away with how quickly they were able to make the repair with such high work quality.  The surface should be very puttable now with only repair seams being visible.  Working with people like this make it a pleasure for me to come in and work along side them everyday!

Below are photos documenting the damage and the staff working hard on the repair.
