The tree is a key part of the hole as it is played now, but who knows, actually losing it could make for exciting recovery shots from below the fairway.

The heat of the summer has finally arrived. It has been a long, wet, and mild winter where our oak trees have put on a lot of new growth. This new growth adds weight to the ends of the limbs especially when the weather heats up. When it is hot, the trees take up a lot of water. This additional weight often causes large limbs to drop from the oaks. We have experienced this on quite a few oaks this year. Below are photos from the large limbs that recently fell from trees along #7 fairway and #9 tee. Unfortunately, the tree alongside #9 tee will have to be removed for safety concerns.

We've started marking our irrigation valves in the native grass areas with blue plastic stakes. We formerly used small irrigation flags but had trouble with the plastic flags detaching. It is important that we mark the valves in the high grass so we can find them when needed. Oftentimes the valves get covered over by gopher mounds or become obscured by the long grass. The blue stakes just signify where there is an irrigation component.
If you happen to need to remove a blue stake to play a golf shot, please replace it. Thanks!!!

The asphalt path from the lower clubhouse parking lot to #10 tee is being replaced this week. The old path had deteriorated and was crumbling following the water line installation/construction over the winter. The new path has 6" of compacted base material and redwood headers. This should be a good path for many years to come.

The old bunker before re-shaping
Ten buggies of sand were removed from the lip, exposing the original contours.
The new, nearly completed, bunker face.
We are re-shaping the faces of the bunkers with excessive sand buildups. This minor re-shaping is being done to extend the bunker's life. It will also keep the greens from becoming severely sloped on the edges, thereby losing good pin placements. In addition, aesthetics; playability; and ease of maintenance will be vastly improved. Bunkers at #7 green, #1 green, #5 green and #8 green will be done next. The bunkers at #19 will be the last to be done in this project.
