The course looks good this Spring and the zoysia grass is beginning to green. The flowering crabapple is beautiful between holes 6 and 8 if you get to play in that area. A big thank you to all the volunteers and donors that helped with the grounds projects the past couple seasons. Jim Reaves would like to recognize volunteer of the week Mike “Sparky” Medwid for his effort in cleaning the grounds at Wedgewood.
Mark your calendar for the upcoming Wedgewood two-person scramble May 28 and 29. More details to be announced.
