Buckthorn Removal Project

The Mens Club has completed its 7th year of removing Buckthorn from the golf course. Here is an article on our hated buckthorn This project started in the winter of 2011, and focused on the berms around the course (holes 18, 17,16 and 14). Here is what it looked like when we started:

Top: 17th tee       Middle: Along 17 Top: Workers on 16    Below: Along 18  



Our focus this past winter was to trim all the trees on the course up to around 6 feet (to allow mowers easier access as well as allow more sun and wind on the course). 

This is the area left of the 2nd fairway (on the hill) :

and the area between the 10th green and 11th tee (during work and after)
