I stopped by Cherry Hill today to see what progress has been made on the clearing and thinning. They've worked the area below hole #4 teepad, and it's quite amazing to see how it has opened it up. I'm anxious to see what the area above #4 teepad looks like after they work it. I'd like to get some discussion going at League this Wednesday for possible new holes in that area. We may have a brief window of opportunity to request that some new fairways be opened up in that area if we come up with a cohesive plan that would build upon the existing course. With the amount of brush and trees that they seem to be removing, it wouldn't be a drastic change to ask for some clear throwing lanes by removing enough extra small trees to form a 20' or 30' wide fairway, working around the larger trees which will be left. One thought is lengthening hole #3, eliminating #4, then after current #5, possibly a couple new holes, with one going back toward the power lines, and then the next one bringing you back to the current #6 teepad area. Or another way to utilize that same general area would be to follow current hole #9 with a hole going across the hill back toward the sledding hill, and then another new hole bringing you back to the current #10 teepad area. The back 9 could also open up enough to add a fairway somewhere. If we can scope it out and come up with some possibilities before they actually clear an area, we could have them work the new fairways with a single pass through an area, though it is a bit difficult to see the possibilities while the dense brush and trees thickets are still there.
