Big thanks to Ian Stone and Todd Hall. Much work was done today and will give the parks dept a better idea where to run the brush hog. Can't thank these guys enough.

meh.. I guess. Well what about the golfers who throw rollers on dry days. they're leaving an evil little trail of erosion with every foot of roller distance. Plus I think the erosion around the tee pad and pin is the real issue here.
My point is, if the erosion is in such a danger situation that we cant have a league night because of saturated wetness, we need to find an actual long term solution. Fortifying pins and greens, moving holes, redesigning holes.. I don't know though, I'm not the pro here like a Jackie Blowe or Tracy Stalker
Plus if Water Works washed away tomorrow, how would you feel knowing you never got to say goodbye to her one last time tonight?? eh?
I took a "12" on #12 during Cliff Drive league once, through a combination of road OBs and going all the way down the hill to the right. IIRC, it was a drive OB, another OB from DZ, then a pissed-off lefty hyzer throw from DZ that went high and blew to the bottom of the hill, several attempts to get back up the hill that hit trees and rolled back down, then finally a successful throw to get up the hill that overshot the fairway and went back OB, then a missed OB putt, then finally a hole out. Yes, it was infuriating.
Player's Cup on hole 1. The strokes didn't count so I Tin Cupped the approach shot.
The hole was a huge drive to a lay up area. Then you could either play safe and go the long way around, or pump a huge hyzer shot over the OB and try to drop it on the well-protected green. I opted for the latter. My first drive (1) landed perfectly at the lay up area. Approach attempt 1 (2) missed. So did attempts 2 (4), 3 (6), 4 (, 5 (10), 6 (12), 7(14), but I made it on attempt 8 (16). I then missed my putt (17) and had a drop in for an 18. Mr. Williams, already pissed off took a 4 and won the hole. I never conceded the hole to him and that pissed him off more than the amount of time it took me to reach the green.
Hmm, should I not help staff the WO this year, and spend my time heckling that Williams dude instead? I could video it.
