Bemidji Town & Country Club Online Newsletter - 06/04/07

After another tough Winter with little snow, and rain which froze and turned to ice, the course is really starting to take shape. The winter kill areas are starting to fill in both on the greens and in the fairways. There are a few problem areas that Tom has seeded, so with the welcome rain and some warm weather these areas should heal quickly. For more information on this please read the postings in the locker rooms.

The water fountain is once again running on hole 18, the fountain had to be replaced this Spring after the previous fountain failed after 17 years.

The tree program is in full swing, there has been substantial tree loss after the recent drought. The Greens Committee will be looking at replacing the trees we lost and managing the trees we have. Some may have noticed that trees between 8,9, and 10 have dead limbs or tops which happened from the drought last year. Itís imperative that we keep the trees we have and to actively plant new trees.

Some may have seen the wood stakes around the practice facility. This is a proposed place for a flowering crabtree which has been donated to the course. Look for an announcement in future newsletters on this donation.

As future projects come up they will be posted as always in the newsletter. If you have any concerns or comments please send me an email to

One last thing, please replace all divots and fix all ball marks.

Greens Chairman,
Scott Tuomala
