2013 here we come

Wow, 1 month of 2013 already in the books. The weather have been a little crazy with unseasonlly warm weather followed by very low nightime temps into the low 20's. Continued native cleanup and clubhouse landscaping. Lots of frost delays but also great photo ops. Here are just a few.
Nothing like a sprinkler stuck on in freezing temps!

Wow, green just 4 weeks ago. Great clean look on #5

#13 willow. Now a thing of the past
These badly diseased trees behind #14 tee are being removed
