The Monterey Pine close to the 9th green and adjacent to the cartpath that separates the 1st and 9th holes will be removed on Tuesday morning. This tree has been leaning more and more each year and threatens to fall. It is causing damage to the surrounding turf with its roots lifting up the sod. It poses a danger to golfers and if it were to fall, would cause significant damage to the 9th fairway and surrounding irrigation sprinklers. The pine tree is nearing its life expectancy and currently offers little protection from errant golf balls. Once removed, the stump will be ground out and the area will be sodded with grass. We are being proactive and removing this tree while the tee time schedule is being modified due to aeration.
