Jim Wegman, Publicity
Spring is right around the corner; the grass is looking greener and some field work is underway. If you see tiny holes on the greens, or larger holes in places around the course, it is the work of the crew needle-punching and tine-punching for better aeration and water dispersal. There might be some wet places on the courses, try not to drive through them. The extra water will support incoming grass growth. The work never ends, and because of the crews, the courses are looking better each year.
All our members will be glad to hear that we are returning to the “Closest-to-the-Pin honors. The COVID-19 situation caused many changes in our normal play routine, but things are getting better.
It is with great sadness I report that our friend and fellow Niner Merv Hedding has passed away. I have known Merv for many years and enjoyed his company both on and off the course. He was a grand guy and always had a smile or a laugh, no matter how good or bad the game was going. Let me offer our deepest condolences to Merv’s wife, Judy, and the Hedding family.
