I hope everyone has had a wonderful week. The maintenance team has performed exceptional after having 5.3 inches of rain since last Friday and I am very pleased with the productivity of the crew. Even though we have some wet areas, mowing was completed and our golfers really seemed to really enjoy themselves. The creek on #1 has escaped the creek bank and saturated the right side of the fairway and in front of the green on #1. This has happened three times now since I have been at LRCC; some evaporation will help. Each time this has happened, rainfall has been 4+ inches of non-stop rain. We did lose a tree between holes #11 and 17, so we will finishing cutting and cleaning up early next week.
Thanks for the many wonderful comments from members and guests. A homeowner stopped me this morning and commented about how beautiful the course was. My staff greatly appreciates hearing those positive words.
