Pre Season golf course repairs

For the first time in many years a group of senior golfers, were allowed  to do some volunteer maintenance on the red tees on the first hole at Little Falls Golf Course.

This tee off had a slope which caused the right-handed golfers having to hit from a downhill lie and the left-handed had an uphill lie.

Now that the tee is level all golfers should be able to score at least one stroke better on this hole.

Thanks Goes to Ray Laquerre and the recreation director Nicole Halasz. of the Township of Atikokan as well as the Union for their cooperation enabling the senior golfers to do this work to make the golfing experience better for all the golfers.

Thanks also goes to Tramin for the loan of a front end loader to move the soil to the tee area and to Oggie’s Landscaping for his tools and expertise in removing and replacing the sod.

Many thanks to those who helped in the work, Ray Laquerre, John Williams, Pete Barna, Jean Lambert, Tod Bryck, Wayne Thomas, Larry Ogden, Richard Lampi, Rick Cain.

this is the third week into the season of Thursday golf, the first week (June 5th) saw only 9 golfers braving the cool and wet weather that has plagued us this spring. The greens were in bad shape with lots of winter kill from the very cold weather and lots of snow.

Week two (June 10th) was rained out.
Today the weather was nice, partly cloudy with a slight breeze in the morning. 13 golfers who showed up to play.
The greens showed a lot of improvement from opening day which was the 27th of May, but it will take another few weeks to be in good shape.
The format for the day was best ball with each golfers tee shots used 2 times.
Team one (72) Leo Lamarche, Pete Barna, Gerry Crips and Dave Livicker.
This was Dave’s last Seniors Thursday before moving to the Calgary area, to be closer to his family. We will miss your wit and your unique prospective of the game.
