May be soggy, but dry air

Bring on da funk
Carpool plans are all up in the air
I can take anyone who wants to go in the pickup
I'm driving up with pallets and plan to work on tee 17, and use pallets over the swampy area as you approach 17's basket.

Moe- anything that comes to mind that needs attention?
No bugs, no ferns, perfect

Mike Giacully left a yard of "crusher run" and said some of it is for the tee of 17. Use it. THANKS MIKEY G!

The white Ford pickup is mine, it's my new junker pickup for dedicated off-road Hyzer use, to replace the retired red Dakota with no brakes or steering.

The wheelbarrow is locked in the shed. Sorry. I would have left it out if I had known. People need to haul the gravel in buckets, pickup trucks, gunny sacks, stuff like that.

Had a great time on the course yesterday. Conditions are excellent
Took pallets and boards and wood and some gravel down hole 17.
Tee box is pretty good and the trail is much better. Kenji cut up a bunch of
little logs for the trail and Tim dragged gravel and wood to the tee box.

Things are in a great shape. Very little snow left.
Mike G's pile of gravel can be used in lots of spots.
Bob Goodwin was up removing winter tree damage.
Fairway 12 just gets better every year.

Tim birdied 1,2,and 3 enroute to a killer 57.
I birdied 7 and 18 enroute to a disaster
Kenji and Julien also had fun in the North country
Nice to have Steve the Prof join us as well.
Some other folks came up to play as well, nice to see.

Good times at hyzer creek! Bad round i was throwing like crap. including 2 20 ft rollaways on 4's green for triple bogey :( after starting ok with birdie bogey birdie rest of the round kinda followed suit. Glad to get some practice in before april showers and I always enjoy myself even if i'm not throwing so good. Cut up the tree leaning on the right of fairway 16 did some work on the trail between 16 and 17. It's pretty wet there.

Sounds like a great time!!

What would you say are the priorities for course maintenance? I'm hoping to get up there sometime this week and play a couple rounds and do a little work. Anything in particular that you noticed needs to get done?

Hey Will thanks for interest in maintaining Hyzer. The way it works is people just adopt holes. Go here and see which holes need adoption.

http://www.hyzercreek.com/sponsors.htm

Greg was working his tail off on 17 cause that's his hole. Mike G brought crusher run for hole 2 that's his hole but he and Greg sort of were helping each other out. My hole is hole 12, that's why I do what I can there. Pick a hole and have fun with it. Have fun and maintain the hole at midnight if you want. You can drink whiskey, you can even use a chain saw. There is no limit on what you can do.

Anybody can use that stone thats why it's there and theres more where that came from if needed.Hole 17 mucho bueno. If u were 2 ask me i would say 13.14 pads need a little tlc .Old 17 pad is right there so it makes it an easy fix.I might be there tuesday afternoon working on that?

Yeah there's a lot of good #2 stone on old 17, people can adopt 13 and 14 and run some stone over there from old 17. Hole 14 has some #3 stone which people say is too rough, needs #2 stone and "crusher run" from old 17. I use #3 stone for the driveway and roads but it's no good for tee pads.

Will + I played 2 rounds at Hyzer Creek yesterday. Morgan was there with Sara, and his girlfriend Julia.

I shot a 59 -2 first round, with an eagle 3 on 16 followed by a bogey on 17 + 18. Nice :o

Will shot a 66.

Second round Will shot a 57 -4. His best at Hyzer by far. I shot a 61 playing LHBH. Threw only 2 flicks. My drive on 12 landed 10' from the 400' rock. My longest drive ever backhand.

We spent over 2 hours doing course maintenance on holes + trails for 1,4,5, 6,7, 8 and 9. Cleaned tee box's, pin areas, took down a ton of dead branch's.

Hole 12 the tee area is surrounded by many Dead trees. Will + I pushed a few down.

We will be back next week to work on the back nine.

I am bringing a leaf blower to clean the fairways of hole 1, 3, 5, 67, and 11. Ok No leaf blower. I hate those bastards anyway.

Morgan left the wheelbarrow out. The rocks Mike G dropped off are great for the tees. Will try to do some tee work as well. Tees for 13, and 14 need some love.

Mike G, and Dave Sawyer showed up for a round. We saw 7 others playing.

If anyone-Greg can bring a few pallets for trails between 1-2, and 17-18 would be very helpful for a few wet areas. The ones already there make a big difference.
