Fall Course Cleanup

When the cooler temperatures of fall descend upon us and golfing begins to slow, there is still plenty of work that still happens on the course. Leaf collection and removal is just one of the tasks that lasts all the way through November. It is necessary to remove the leaves. Leaves left in piles or in layers can cause damage to the turf over the winter when trapped under the snow. This is quite an accumulation of leaves that we have to remove from the property.

The staff works in freezing weather to clean the property of leaves and debris.

Daily blowing of the leaves on the fairways is performed until all leaves are gone.

Leaves around the clubhouse and golf shop areas are collected and removed

Below - We have 4 rough mowers that mulch the leaves in the roughs.
