It is my intention to give the readers a better understanding of what we do to maintain The Farms Country Club's 18 hole championship golf course and grounds.

Storm Damages Four Large Trees On Course!

An intense storm last night sent the maintenance staff scrambling this morning. Four large trees sustained serious damage. Our immediate goals were to make the golf course playable for the start of Ryder Cup weekend and to make sure players would be safe. We cleared as much debris from play areas as possible and roped off the danger zones around the damaged trees. Under no circumstances should any player enter the roped off areas. Golfers playing hole #16 are being directed off the path in front of the tee and must follow the white line to the front of #17 tee. Tee markers on #17 have been moved to the 1st cut path in front of the tee.
Our tree company was on site by 7AM to access the damage. They will begin the cleanup first thing Monday morning. All work should be complete by Tuesday evening.
The Oak on hole #1 will be pruned for safety. The remaining three trees (Maple #2 tee, Beech #17 tee & Oak #17 tee) will be removed.

Thank you for your patience!
