It has been a beautiful week of golf weather. It was a nice change of pace from the rainy and cold days the majority of the past two months. It has really affected our revenues for the budget. We are down about $20,000 in comparison to the past couple of years. An early spring start up to the season will eliminate the majority of this deficit.
I have completed the majority of work for the 2017 Business Plan. This plan will recap the success of the 2012 Business Plan and lay the groundwork for moving forward the next five years. The remaining part to this new plan will be completed in November when I receive some financial figures from Brian Weuve.
This past week we removed quite a few dead trees around the golf course. There were close to 20 trees removed throughout the 2017 golf season. The stump removal will still be necessary later this fall.
Fortunately we received two tree grants, this past spring, totalling 105 new trees for the golf course. These trees are doing great and have received much TLC during the season. I also met with Trees Forever, last week, and the new trees were added to the GPS listing of all their new trees.
The water quality project is moving forward with much success in all areas of south Spencer. The golf course portion has been on hold due to the heavy rainfalls and saturated soil conditions. The current plan is to start work, around the fifth green surrounds, in the next couple of weeks.
Today we are hosting a three person best shot tournament. There are 60 individuals signed up which is pretty good for this time of year. It looks like sunshine and a temperature topping out around 65. Sounds like the makings of a good day.
