Gearing up for warmer weather

With spring in full swing and summer on the way the grounds keepers here at Wilderness Ridge have plenty to keep them busy. Right now we are starting to re-build numerous sand traps on the course, which means removing edging and replacing sand. There are also areas of the course that have snow mold that will need to be raked out. Snow mold is a common winter disease and is easily remedied when the mold is raked away so new growth can begin.

The grounds also need cleaning up after the long snowy winter and our irrigation system will need to be checked for any leaks. We want to make sure each hole is in great condition before heavy golf traffic hits the course. A few trees have lingering Christmas lights that need to be taken down now that the weather is warm as well as other odds and ends tasks around The Lodge.

As you can see there is plenty to keep us busy before summer gets here! We look forward to seeing you on the course soon.
