I spent about 5 hours today working on the course. A very productive day.
I met with three of the town workers, and one of them is building a small kiosk for the sign and map of the course, which I think I will put up near the practice basket. The other two town workers heard about the vandalism on Sunday, and pulled the video for that day to see if they have enough to identify one or more of the persons responsible for the damage. They also found most of my posts/flags from the tops of the baskets that had been stolen, the tee markers that had been broken off, and the missing hole #2 tee sign and returned them to me.
I replaced the tee markers, and once again, all tees are marked for the course. I re-installed the three posts/flags on baskets for increased visibility.
I spent most of my day on hole #1, taming the rough rough. I trimmed high tree branches hanging over the fairway, removed brush, rose hedge, and vines along the left side of the fairway. I trimmed up a lot along the left edge with my brush trimmer, and moved the basket back to the short placement. If you have not played this hole in a while, I would say it is definitely worth playing now. With the basket in short, there is a slight chance at a long duece with two very well thrown shots.
I also worked some on hole 2. I took down four small trees along the left of the fairway, and trimmed many branches along the entire length of the fairway on both sides.
