Not much to report this week.  We had about 0.5” of rain, almost all on Wednesday - the 9th green flooded briefly.  It soon cleared but the water had an affect on the speed.

Course work concentrated on mowing.  The greens were alternately cut or ironed, but we still got a Stimp reading of 8’ 11” on Thursday - the forecast for Friday was dire so we measured a day early, again.

Iwan the greenkeeper said his farewells on Friday, but would like to come back to help out next summer.  His replacement Eli seems to be settling in well.

We hope to carry out the annual hay harvest this coming week, assuming the forecast dry weather materialises.
