Way to Goat!

As our maintenance crew aerified fairways, tees, and approaches over the past two weeks, our other "crew" has been diligently working on restoring the rugged look to the canyon below the 10th tee.  Although pictures document the work being done, it is hard to describe just how much overgrowth the goats cleared out in less than two weeks.  Amazing!

The Brush is Greener on the Other Side of the Fence

The goats were excited to work in the 18th canyon and the difference it has made is stunning.  Now the real work begins as the remaining canyon sites are loaded with years of lush green overgrowth.  We have been pushing these guys to eat as much as possible on 18, but they knew was was lurking on the other side of the fence and so to the 10th they go...

Just in Case You Missed it...

18th Canyon prior to the arrival of the brush goats
Last Friday our new workforce finished their work on the canyon near the 17th green and 18th tee.  It is quite a sight to see the progress on a daily basis and probably even more impressive to see the before and after.

Goats/Dogs at Work

Since their arrival the goats have made some really good progress. In only a week we are already starting to see many of the natural features of the baranca on #18 being revealed.

The first couple of nights there was a little barking from the two dogs that are inside the fence to protect the goats, but that is believed to be attributed to the deer, and has subsided since both the deer and the dogs have gotten used to each other.

So far only two people have gotten a zap from the electric fence that surrounds the goats, and thankfully both were able to laugh about it shortly after it happened.
