Improvements to the golf course this year have included projects such as the renovation of our short game practice area behind the cart storage building. This area which is also used as a greens nursery was in dire need of repair and with the help of our friends from Champion Turf Farms is now another asset to our golf course and a great place for our golfers to practice.

Electric Equipment Initiative Goes Public
Along with our Mallard Duck nesting tubes and our wild turkey feeders, my favorite environmental project that we do The Harrison Bay Eagle Cam Project was a tremendous success this year. With the hatching failure that Elliott and Eloise experienced last year to see the two little eaglets hatch, grow and fledge this year was doubly exciting. The Harrison Bay Eagle Cam Project has reached over 211,000 unique viewers in 69 different countries since it began. We are grateful for all our sponsors and supporters we have had over the years and are especially grateful that the USGA Green Section has once again provided major funding for this years operation. Hopefully within the next two weeks we will have a new pan/tilt/zoom camera installed beside the nest and a microphone installed so we can hopefully hear this years brood calling out for some fish or turtle. Two Weeks Since Eaglet Hatching
Most of all I have to thank my fantastic staff. Without their passion and dedication to the conditioning and playability of the golf course we would not be in the position we are today. Although I tend to hear the great comments from the golfers and guests, the golf course maintenance staff are the ones that make the golf course what it is and they deserve all the credit.
Great Work Gentlemen!!!
