True dat.

Fortune pads are dirt and should likely remain dirt.

Hey, Chuck,
what sort of guidelines are there on this sort of stuff?

As for "tree removal", if it's smaller than your thumb, can it be removed or better yet, moved?

On the other hand, a bit of woodships (a la Brampton) on the more wet/slippery teepads would be nice. Especially for CC.

I don't want to set guidelines before I hear people's ideas. We don't want to snuff out people's creativity.

I am going to ask that people show me what you'd like to do so that I am able to defend any actions taken on the course to the management.

It will also allow for a certain level of continuity from one hole to the next.

For sure. Does anyone know of a place to get wood chips? If so, how much $$ for how much?

What is the cost to adopt a hole?

Just wondering...?
Cheers

I think the idea is that when you adopt a hole, you are the one who takes care of it.

So, the cost is the time that you put into it.

Let's say for instance if you wanted to Adopt a hole from where you are, it would cost you weekly plane fair to come and maintain that hole or the amount of a maintenance worker's salary to come up and do some pruning big grin big grin

I was phoning around yesterday looking for wood chips and there's a guy on the Quebec side who said he could hook us up for the cost of gas to CF, which he figured was about $40!

Phat-e, what do you think?

This guy's # is 776-2620.

I could also do #17. Maybe build a very unstable bridge.

Chips would be very useful. We could use a tonne up on #2 fairway and make a path right up th middle.

What tees would we consider chip-worthy?

Think stable, think strong, think about $400, and think made so that only golfers and not mountain bikers use it (i.e. walk-around barriers). If you build it, and someone thinks it's safe, and walks or bikes across it, and falls, and hurts themself, you'll be liable. It would have to be made so that this doesn't happen. Talk to me about doing this if you are serious, though. Expect construction to take two people about a day to complete given cordless screwdrivers, a chainsaw, and a shovel.

Ones with the thick bush/grass growing around it, like #10. Maybe #9 longs...#15 long and shorts, and #16 shorts (if you want to use this pad), #5 longs could use chips, as well as #4 long and short. The area in front of #12, and behind #11 could use a sponge of chips.

Phat-e, if you want to use this guy call him and arrange for a drop off. Maybe this weekend I can find time to go up with a wheel barrow and a shovel.

A bridge on 17 is in the works.

I will speak to 17s adopted father, Ben and we'll work it from there.

Yes. He gave me the name of another company that might be able to help. He doesn't have the amount we are looking for.


I will also speak to an arborist friend of mine. I'm sure he's got some he needs to get rid of.
