A stump cutter on loan from Whitetail is being put to use. The course lost a few trees over the winter, specifically tree on right by Aspen #7, and by the practice green.

Stair reconstruction is in progress. It will be landscaped by Master Gardeners. Running a bit over budget. Extra will be paid by the Men’s Association. Construction done by Winston Yeast Construction Budget: Two year projection, approval of one year at a time. Don’t foresee an increase this year. Labor crew is fully staffed. Cedar Nine is in great shape except #6 green. Aspen 4, through 9 greens and practice green suffered severe winter kill but are already beginning to respond with regrowth. WSU will be conducting snow mold research trials at McCall GC to find a product that both works well and is environmentally safe. Tests will be conducted on the practice green. We are to have a fountain in the main irrigation pond. This will be used to help reduce moss. A diver will be dredging the sump and clean the screen. A new self cleaning screen will be installed. PROFESSIONAL’S REPORT: Allan Morrison Opening May 29th on Birch and Cedar nines. Two Man Best Ball is moved to June 21st & 22nd. Sean from Babblefish will begin in concessions May 15th. Proshop is fully staffed. GENERAL DISCUSSION: Marketing ideas – free golf, cart & range balls for two – any day, anytime the course is open, good for one full year from time of drawing.

Next months meeting: Eric will report on the budget meeting. Rules and Regulations will be discussed. Meeting date is June 11th at 5PM
