The last two months have been interesting to say the least.
We were optimistic in March that we were going to have one of the best openings ever. The weather had been fantastic for working outside and we were way ahead of the game. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has forced us to modify our strategy to a rotating one-man crew indefinitely. I have personally been home and away from Nehoiden GC for three weeks.
A big thank you is in order to all of those at Wellesley College who have been able to focus on keeping the campus, including the golf course, in shape while many of us are at home practicing self-quarantine. Last week an unfortunate micro burst hit the property leaving a cacophony of damaged trees and debris. The property looked like a disaster zone. This occurred during Paul Haswell’s week at the course. Paul stepped up big time not only cleaning the course but he also managed to get everything mowed on the course.
We are all eager to get the green light and open up for the 2020 season. We will be continuing with our skeleton crew for another month to help flatten the curve. Please understand that if the condition of the course is not what you are used to, it is because we have limited resources at this time. We will be out there working hard for you, but just in a limited capacity. If we are all smart we can beat this virus and get back to life as normal.
