Tree down during storm
Before the trees began to lose their leaves, I've identified a number of trees which are weak structurally and could possibly pose a hazard to our members, guests and staff. One of the trees was an old white oak at the beginning of #1 fairway. The tree was in pretty serious decline above ground and was showing some weakness at the ground level as well.
Before we had the opportunity to remove this tree, the heavy rain we experienced for 10 days in late October brought the tree to the ground.
