Our club Pro Ernie Cruse spoke and he welcomed everyone back. He reminded everyone using golf carts not to drive next the greens and if you are legitimately handicapped to always stay outside of the blue stakes. He told everyone not to cross the golf course at any time when not playing in order to get from one place to another. Please use the roads like everyone else has to. He reported that the bunker repair restrictions due to the new transion grass should be lifted very soon, determined by the new sod taking root. He told the membership that he and Bill Balash, the assistant pro, are available at any time to answer any questions you may have. He said that they will be agresively doing weed control with a massive spraying project over the entire course. This will cause some yellowing of the fairways, tee boxes greens and rough but they will recover over a reasonable period of time.
