04-28-2007: Tuck’s Turf

By Howie Tucker

Does anyone have a crystal ball to let us know what the weather is going to do this year? Is there going to be a golf season or not. Boy, we all do need a golf-fixin’ weather soon.

Course condition
Please bear with us with the watering situation. Bad weather, high winds and an old system has really been tough for us getting things going in the right direction. Like I say, please bear with us. Joe, Stephen and I are doing all we can for right now.

Course additions
Turfstone Tee Consoles have been added for the presentation of the holes and directions. Businesses from town contributed for the consoles. The consoles picture the hole and the information to the golfers.
Many thanks to all of the tee console supporters!
