What a golf season!?!? 2018 was good and crazy! Our bridge project provided some highs and lows with 3 holes out of play for 6 months. We have a beautiful bridge to cross thanks to Denny, our amazing bridge builder! We had some mowing maneuvering to maintain those 3 holes. That was very time consuming and treacherous while driving mowers down the highway to Bayles Road and back. Unfortunately, we lost a lot of grass on those greens and weeds crept in. We have been reseeding and inserting plugs and the grass has quickly filled in. (Thank you sister Lori W for setting a record number of plugs!) (See after and before pictures below.) Anyone remember the I-69 construction barrier that said our road was closed for two months even though the road was actually open to our business. That was complete insanity. Can't tell you how many phone calls were made to the "I-69 office" to get that fix, to no avail.
We are grateful for your patience during this 2018 golf season! Thank you for playing golf at Taylors this year, for hanging out with us on any given day and for being our friend!
Winter is approaching. We just completed our 17th year as owners of Taylors' Par 3. A few things we've learned... 1. When the weather starts getting colder take a rest and close the course. The last day for our golf season is Friday, November 16th. We pull the pins, tee markers and put the course to bed. Come join a small group of regulars that play the last round together while we say goodnight to each tee and green. We start the play and course closing around 4:00 p.m. The course reopens in March when weather permits. 2. Because grass needs growing time to heal from damage of play we honor all the work that has happened over a season to let that grass rest. Sound crazy? Not when you've worked 9 months, 7 days a week to have it look so beautiful! Grass is damaged when anyone walks on it when it is frozen or has frost on it. That's why golf courses delay start times during the Fall and Spring. Frozen blades of grass break off and will heal but not until they have time to grow. Eventually anything damaged will grow back when it is growing season. So until we close for the season be aware of local frost and freeze warnings. 3. Vince's law practice still operates in the clubhouse all year. During the winter months we are here Monday-Friday, 9-5. There might be a week off here or there for a vacation. If you need an attorney call the office (812) 330-8611 and set up an appointment! 4. Our law office Public Service Announcement for you is GET A WILL! We'll be blunt, if you die without a will your family will be harmed immeasurably. No one should be expected to fix your mess. While we are on that, no it isn't tempting fate. You won't die because you had a will prepared. Finally, yes, the law office prepares wills!
