The Turf Will Be Feeling Chipper

When growing quality turfgrass, two of the key components to success are sunlight and air movement.  Over the past 20 plus years, tree growth has encroached significantly on certain areas of the course, limiting both light and air flow.

This winter, in an effort to provide a better growing environment for the grass, we've done extensive tree work.  The areas pruned include behind the Clubhouse, around #2/12 tees, #14 green, and along #17 and 18. 

While a good deal of the cut material can be left in place, some of it must be chipped up.  In addition to the wood we have cut over the winter, some extra chipping was needed this year thanks to Hurricane Sandy.

A small amount of the material we chipped at locations around the course.
