Course Maintenance

Postby Buzzznation » Fri Dec 22, 2006 8:52 am

Did someone let Sprague loose with a chainsaw at Big Creek? :lol: I was over there a couple of days ago and full trees were cut down :shock: I am not complaining, just wondering what the scoop is. I think the course looks great.

Which leads me to my poll question (which may be an aftermath).
1) Should Big Creek be refubished to it's original design (take out a lot of the dogwood/ thorn bushes/ weeds/ etc. and trim up the trees)?
2) Or leave it the way it is with minimal trim?
3) I could care less

where's the "it doesn't matter what you choose because we'll never get it done unless it's two days before a tournament" button?

Clue, Steve, and anybody else that might have been out to Big Creek Wednesday. Good job! That course looks so much cleaner from Tuesday to Thursday I couldn’t believe it. :shock:
Props to you guys

so we were out at the crack last nite and hole 8's basket was pretty much bent at a 90 degree angle. the mower must have just run the Chucker over. after watching whitson and fausch struggle for a few minutes me and weaver joined them in bending it back. well its much better now but i dont know if the mower caused it to come loose at the ground or what it might be easier to wiggle it out now. not sure if they were creted or not
