Tree Plantings

Our trees are an important resource for the golfing experience at NCC. Understanding that, I developed a Tree Management Program several years ago that was approved by the Grounds and Green Committee. With over 2800 trees on the property, we have a variety of trees that are in varying conditions of health. Our Tree Management Program includes trimming, fertilizing, pruning, controlling pests, and planting new trees on the course. At times we may have to remove a tree that is dead or rotting and becomes a safety hazard. I work closely with the Green Chairman, our architect Dr. Hurdzan, and with a certified arborist to insure that we have a solid plan for caring for our trees.

Below is a photo of 4 new trees that we planted last year behind #2 white tee.
