Improvements will continue at Harrison Bay all winter, especially if we continue to have this great warm weather. Any area, on or around any of the greens, that has been renovated will be marked and should be considered Ground Under Repair and should be played as such.
Thanks to Willie, Barry, and Mitch for doing such a great job on this project. Now onto the next one.

Golf Agronomics. The new mix was spread and floated out across the green. We were able to successfully disturb the top 2-3 inches of the existing greens complex by using the tracks of the Bobcat to fluff up the sand which I feel allowed for the new greens mix to blend with the existing green so we will not have a layer barrier and thus did not need to till the two layers together.
Champion Turf Farms on Wednesday morning. It took Thursday and Friday to install the 6,500 sq ft of sod. I had forgotten how challenging laying small rolls of sod on a green could be but thanks to our dedicated agronomy staff we got it done, and done well.
We thank you for all your patience and understanding as we continue to work to improve the golf course for your enjoyment.

The Harrison Bay Eagle Cam Project, which can be viewed at www.harrisonbayeaglecam.org, is a great project that we have a lot of fun with. The project was begun to allow us to watch "real time" life in a bald eagles nest but also to show how a properly managed golf course can not only be a place of enjoyment for golfers but also provide a safe and suitable habitat for wildlife to live and raise their young. Over the years we have had over a million viewers view our project from all over the world. We hope that everyone who logs on will enjoy the project for what it was designed for and we thank you for your continued support and funding.
