Caddyshack??

  Reminiscent of the movie “Caddyshack”, Palm Creek golf course has recently been inundated with burrowing moles who attack those fresh grass roots and do tremendous damage to a golf course.

   The moles tunnel just under the grass and can create huge bare spots that just collapse when walking on them.

  The tunnels must be dug up  and replaced with a special soil.  This is some of the damage over by the 15th hole by the white markers.

 

 

Sad to say that trapping is the best alternative so it’s Fernando to the rescue to save our golf course from further destruction.

Stay active out there on the golf course folks as the vultures are waiting near by.
