#17 with shadows falling about 8:30 Friday evening.
We were blessed with fantastic weather for Blazer Days 2011. The grounds staff are always excited to prepare the course for this event. We put forth our best effort to ensure that the course is as close to perfect as we can achieve. Our entire staff worked over 50 hours last week despite only working 3 hours on Memorial Day. Crew members worked a continual shift from 5AM until 8PM on Thursday and worked a split shift on Friday to allow the tournament to be played. With cooperation from Mother Nature we were able to maintain green speeds between 11 and 12 feet. We received numerous complements and got the impression that a good time was enjoyed by all participants.
