Buckthorn Removal Project

The Mens Club has been working since the winter of 2011 to remove Buckthorn from the golf course.

Buckthorn is a very invasive plant/tree in our area. Here are some articles on what's so bad about it:

The early years  focused on the berms around the course (holes 18, 17,16 and 14). Here is what it looked like when we started:

Top: 17th tee       Middle: Along 17 Top: Workers on 16    Below: Along 18  
 
 
   

 

 

In the  winter of 2017, our focus was to trim all the trees on the course up to around 6 feet (to allow mowers easier access as well as allow more sun and wind on the course). 

This is the area left of the 2nd fairway (on the hill) :

and the area between the 10th green and 11th tee (during work and after)
