The New Look at 6 Pond

Last fall the three old willow trees had to be removed by 6 pond.  The trees had reached their life expectancy.  The quality and condition of the willows were failing and had become hazardous.  There were two remaining smaller willows located on each end.  It was decided last week by the Grounds Committee to remove the willows and completely open the view of the pond.  If we do decide to replant this area willow trees will not be the tree of choice.  Instead we will select a tree or trees with a larger canopy that will allow for a view up the 7th hole.

There is still a great deal of work that needs to be completed.  Tree stumps need to be ground, weedy grasses need to be sprayed with herbicide and then the area will then be tilled and prepped for sod.  The new look will be fantastic when completed.
