Arnie's Presence at Hagen's Reception in 1967

Arnie's trade mark umbrella was on his jet in 1967.

Arnie's army lands at Cherry Capital Airport but did you know that the first airport in Traverse City was just west of Veterans Drive?

Arnie with Warren Orlich

We have all seen this group picture before but this is little different angle and view of Hagen with his feet up.

Cross Country Trail Update

With the mild temperatures last week and with no recent snow fall, we will not be grooming the cross country ski trail until we get a measurable amount of fresh snow.  Many areas are bare and down to the grass.

Oak Tree Next to 18 Green

Click Here For Web Version

On Monday, our tree company started taking down an oak tree that was hit by lighting back in 2002.

On Tuesday, the remainder of the wood was cut up.  I counted 141 rings.

A third of the base was soft and rotten and there was no bark on the entire east side of the tree.

9/22/14 Update

The green committee has decided to replant 12 cherry trees on the right of #3.  Last year's record cold winter was rough on our cherry tree orchard, we lost all 54.

There are photos of holes 3, 12 and 15 being all cherry and apple trees.  They are also such large part of our regional culture and in our logo, the committee wanted to give it another try on a new set of trees, they were planted on Friday.

This week will continue aerifying our front nine fairways.  Monday will be holes 1, 3 and 8.  Tuesday will be 5 and 9.  No aerification on Wednesday with the closing ladies day event.  On Thursday will hopefully finish with hole #6.

Last week the entrance drive landscape lighting was installed and if you haven't seen it, it really looks great.  We'll finalize that project this week.

Also this week we will be catching up on our rough mowing, mowing down our fescue areas and general course maintenance.
