This week the much requested steps were installed on the 6th hole. These steps lead golfers down the slope from the white tee to the green tee. West Lake Landscape, from Hopkins, did a great job with the installation. I know when the golf season rolls around next spring this will be a nice surprise for the men and women who use the green tee.
One interesting surprise during the installation. While the contractors were digging in the soil, they uncovered a very old animal bone. The bone is quiet large an appears it could be from a cow or an animal of that size. Interestingly the tee area on six was built in the fall of 1996 with soil from the pond on 6 when the old liner in the pond was removed and the pond was dug to it's current depth. So we are assuming when this animal died, it died around the pond. The bone is in very good condition and of course we have no idea how old it is. But since the golf course was built over 111 years ago, this is what we believe to be an old bone.
