What a year one its been at The Woodlands! The process of building and shaping a course has been great fun and I appreciate all the help I've received along the way. The course is continually improving and with that in mind, here are a few updates:
All of the hole signs are done, I just need to install the last 2. In fact, I will be out with concrete one of these weekends to put them all in for good. Next year, a map of each hole is planned.
Another definite is a kiosk with a course map by hole #1. That is also a 2014 project as well.
Bridges have been added at holes two and three. Fairways are being shaped, especially in the woods. I've also spoken to the town about doing a better job mowing #9 and the future #10 (spring 2014?). The town is VERY happy with the course and is willing to help in any way they can.
I do need someone with a chainsaw that might be willing to meet me out there to clear a few big trees that fell during a recent storm. Let me know if that sounds like something you might be willing to do.
We do have patches of poison ivy on the course. Twice I've been out spraying and cutting and it has diminished, but its not completely gone. Over time, as I've been assured has been the case at many courses in the area, we should be able to get rid of it.
I will say that the course is not "easy." However, as the novice player that I believe myself to be, I've played dozens of times and have never lost a disc. But if I do find one out there, I'll be sure to call!
Once again, thanks for all the help out there!
