Eagle Ridge Longs are set in Stone!
30 days from first phone call to Mr. Mike Fee making this happen. Thanks to the grounds Crew.
The 14th of November I called together and organized a walk through with John Tiffany to mark out the longs. The last club meeting I brought up that I wanted to move forward with this project and push for placing stone immediately. The subject was pushed and a committee was formed. Delay in forward progress so I pulled the trigger. Communication with the Park District gave me no time to sit on this. Mike Fee made it clear that if we wanted to move forward now was the time due to man power availability and bad weather coming soon. Like to thank again Mr. Mike Fee for pushing forward and surgically placing the stone on all 17 long placements (#9 long in place already). The ground crew is amazing and how they did all that work without ripping up the course is beyond my understanding. Oswego Park District continues to improve the Eagle Ridge Park and I as a FVMDGC member appreciate all that they do. Side note the ball started rolling with this project October 26th when I called Tom Betsinger and Mike Fee to ask if we could move forward with the longs.
