    and chips

    If any of you out there in the tree trimming business can talk your boss into some cheap or free wood chips for DR and/or HB the Club would greatly appreciate a hot lead for this material. Joe intends to have chips spread over the gravel around the greens to make them play a little softer.

      Soft

      The Club has ordered 18 yards of ground bark to put around the baskets. This will help the greens absorb spring rain and soften the basket positions a great deal. With the gravel underneath the current muddy conditions should stiffen up a bit and when things dry out it wont be so dusty. It takes a lot of material to upgrade an entire golf course so please be patient with Joe's effort to acquire and distribute these two firms of new ground cover. Please call him and ask him when he will have his crew on hand to do the work so you can pitch in..... ... All these little upgrades will make for one fine Downriver Open this April and provide the playing public with enjoyment for the rest of this year and those to come..... Join the SDGA and help keep it all happening. Thanks, Gordy

        I went out to Downriver for a solo casual round on Sunday while my wife was doing some other stuff. I don't get out there often and don't think I've been there since sometime last summer but I have got to say that I have never seen that course looking so nice. I am impressed with everyone who has helped out there. The cleaning of debris, making walking paths more obvious, new gravel, tee signs and benches, etc it all looks nice. I liked some of the small changes that I saw as well most notably hole hole 14's tee pad moving back is a nice touch. I only made it through 14 holes before I had to leave but I left utterly impressed with the amount and quality of work that had been done out there. Nice work SDGA volunteers.
