Fairways and greens in good shape, however there have been 30 breaks to date in the watering system. The present system we have was installed in 1982. The latest estimate to replace the watering system is $1.5 million including the sand traps, and $1.3 million excluding the traps.
Mr. Lanza estimated that there would be a 50% savings in labor costs with a new system.

Ladies tees - Currently the red tees are designated for women over 65 years of age .The board thinks maybe make the red tees to a player’s ability instead. We will discuss this item further.
