Rascally Rodent

Once the snow melted from January's blizzard, we found an unusual sight on #2 fairway. 

So what caused this turf damage?  Well, while we've had a good deal of migratory geese stopping in over the winter, we can't blame them for this issue. 

No, this turf munching was done by a small rodent.  Upon closer inspection you can see that there is a broken drain lid in this location. 

No doubt that somebody took up residence in the drain line, and with lots of snow on the ground, they found it easier to move around and snack on some turf from below this blanket.  A new lid was installed, which should prevent this from occurring again.
