Welcome to my blog!
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.

Final Coat of Topdressing Sand & Storm Cleanup

The final coat of topdressing sand was applied to the greens yesterday. The heavy coat of sand protects them from winter dessication.

The tree company is still working hard to prune the damaged trees created by Storm Alfred. The extensive damage left an incredible amount of hazardous situations throughout the "in-play" areas on the course. We will continue work on these areas until we are confident we are providing a safe environment for our players.
