Winter is Almost Gone

Wow time is flying by.  We have had some great weather in Chattanooga this winter.  We have been blessed with warmer than usual temperatures and moderate rainfall.  All that has lead to us having the best January in our existance and putting us on pace to have our best year of golf rounds yet.  The crew has been working hard to get the remaining bunkers on the back nine renovated and we are down to only 7 more that we are planning on fixing before spring hits.  With this weather trend though it might be here sooner than we want.

Our other big project for the winter, the Harrison Bay Eagle Cam, is off and running also.  We have had a great amount of publicity about it in local and state papers and in a recent article "Eagle Eye" in GCSAA's monthly publication Golf Course Management .  I am so thankful for all our sponsors on this project and all the assistance I have gotten from fellow State of Tennessee employees and vendors in Chattanooga.  This project is going to be another great way for us to show how golf courses can be beneficial to the environment and wildlife.

Eloise has laid two eggs to date, one on Feb. 11 and one on Feb. 14.  Normal schedule will have the eggs hatching around the middle of March so stay tuned.
