Double Rainbow Over Foxfire Golf Club, Inc Today


As I was driving out to the back 200 acres this am to check the rain gauge, I noticed the bright colors in the sky! God is good! The other photos below are from the woodworking class we had on Monday, and the Foxfire golf course fairways. Tuesday I had the opportunity to see Jerry’s place at Kyber Run, for our final outdoor meeting, of the season, for the Central Ohio Golf Course Superintendents Association! What a great venue Jerry! Thank you!

The windmill runs some items for Jerry, and I believe it may power some fountains in the lakes. A lot of lakes!

Leaves Changing Grass Greening!


These were a few pictures taken in between the rain. The great news is the grass is greening up, and the forecast is for warmer weather.

First Week of Fall!


In the last eight days we have gone from high temperatures of 82 to high temperatures of mid to high 50’s, and only one day of precipitation in the last 22. We even had a practice round of ice, sleet, or snow on Saturday across central Ohio! But the rain was perfecting timing on the Fall nutrients!

The Single row irrigation system on the Foxfire course still operates as it did 40 years ago!

Finishing Work Begins on #5 Players


Great news! The drainage & irrigation repair is working. We needed to wait for the area to dry out to verify this process. The rough grade & grass seed has been completed. The final step will be completed this week with hard, fine tooth hand rakes. Before photos. After the grass seed germinates, we will level the “site tube” or flush out to grade.

All projects are a process and need to be completed in stages. The timing of completion depends on several factors, including but not limited too resources!

Another Eight AM Shotgun brings an opportunity to audit the irrigation on the Players Course! Great Work Guys!
Photo below is from the Deluge of rain on Labor Day Weekend.

I did not have the opportunity to get an after shot as soon as the bunker was restorated but was able to get one on Sarurday! This is amazing work with only three highly skilled laborers.

Number 8 Players Bunker resembles that of a Reese Jones or Pete Dye design, and is looking the best it has looked since my arrival! Thank you Luis for your dedication to detail!
