In our January meeting it was determined that the cart paths are in need of some patch work and overlay. The time is now to improve the cart paths or risk further decay which would be a greater expense. This is a major project to take on but will benefit the course greatly and one that needs to be addressed now rather than later. One reason we are having problems is the cart paths run close to trees, and the roots of the trees break up the asphalt as the tree grows. I know that we all hate to remove trees, but in some cases the trees will have to be removed to eliminate future damage. In other cases the roots under the paths can be cut out with minimal effect on the tree. It's the hope that we can start this project as soon as the snow melts and before the course opens for play.
