We developed this blog to provide golf course maintenance information to our members. From projects, small and large, to updates on course conditions, we want to provide as much information as possible. Although we hope this blog answers all of the pertinent questions regarding our operation, we always welcome more personalized dialogue. If you have questions beyond the information found on this blog, feel free to contact our golf course superintendent, Trevor Hedgepeth.

Construction Begins on the New Vegetable Garden

As winter progresses along, the maintenance staff has begun preparations for this year’s vegetable garden.  Due to last year’s success with our small scale plots, we have decided to expand the garden to nearly 10,000 sq ft.  This will provide ample room to implement a season long growing and harvesting schedule.

Work has begun on grading the existing garden as well as the area around it in order to provide proper water runoff.  In addition, drainage will be installed in case of larger rains and continuously wet conditions.  In order to provide proper conditions for growing, sub-ground irrigation will be installed.  Plants will be cultivated in raised beds which will allow for ideal soil conditions for growth.

The following pictures show the beginnings of the grade work on the new garden area.  Stay tuned for more pictures.
