2018 has been an interesting year at Niakwa.
The main topic of conversation for much of the year was, of course, playing conditions.
As I said in a previous blog, the winter of 2017/18 was unprecedented. (or “unpresidented” as the leader of the free world would Tweet) Lack of snow cover, cold temperatures and unrelenting, howling wind did a number on our greens and fairways. Fairways recovered quickly, but the greens were another story.
Fortunately for members, the Board of Governors and Management had the courage to address greens damage head on. The four greens that were rebuilt in 2018 should be in good shape in 2019 and for years to come.
