Playing devil's advocate here, but it looks like we lost a bunch of trees at Cliff recently and a lot of trees were also cut down recently. Could any of those that were cut down have been transplanted? Just a thought and don't intend to thread drift.
Can't wait for the event, weather looks great so far!
When we "cut down" trees at cliff it is because they are dead/dying/diseased. We have lost quite a few trees, and we will be losing more. Look at the "first" tree on #18 when you play it. You can already see that the entire top east end of it isn't with leaves. It has already started to die. The "front" tree on #8 in between is seriously....amazed it hasn't gone down. Look down #4 there are many trees there going to be gone soon as well.
With the revamp or redesign on the course we want to populate trees that will enable us to mold a course better in the future, and also add to the aesthetic value of the area. We have lost many trees over the past decade, (in the current configuration) #11 big tree middle of fairway....#13, SO MANY TREES IT ISNT FUNNY, but seriously probably about 10 on the area along the road, and out in the middle....#14, a bunch, like 6.....and of course the big bruiser on #17 that hole will not be the same ever again without it, it just simply isn't.
Suffice it to say this is a GREAT cause, and the players pack I believe if you signed up was a disc and a shirt. The fee is nominal and the event is great. Please do remember that NO DAY OF REGISTRATION IS ACCEPTED-this means many of our "local pros" that have a tendency to show up Saturday morning. You want in, register in advance, or call Scott and let him know you will be there, or Drew. If you don't plan on being there in advance, your money will still be accepted as a donation to the course and you can help by spotting or volunteering to help and that is encouraged even more.
All proceeds will continue to go towards the TLC fund, I believe it is now over $1500, and we will probably be planting the trees next year.
This is also quite possibly the last chance to play many of the placements on the course as we head into the winter months the goal of the redesign will start to move even more! Get out and be a part of history.
