The course is pretty destroyed at the moment, after last nights storm.
I didn't notice anything until the walk up to hole 6. A huge tree fell across the blue tee and on top of the picnic table. Several more dropped on 6 blocking all shots except from the red tee. There are also at least two more huge trees blocking the path to 7.

I can't make it early tomorrow but this afternoon I'm available outta work at 5. If anyone wants to meet me and try to move/push some of this stuff outta the way ill help out but go no tools though to help cut anything.

Thanks, Rob , wish I could but I can't make it up there. I've got a hand saw to lend if you need it.
I spoke with NAP (Natural Area Preservation) today, they are the good folks who tend to our park areas, and will be taking a look. Huge downed trees, chainsaws definitely necessary.
Beware the NAP..they are responsible for at least 1 potential course not being developed in Ann Arbor, and maybe another..
We're no better than any other developer paving habitat over with a parking lot if we don't take the time to consider the impact of our activities--NAP is the organization responsible for the stewardship of our shared resources.
So saying that they are "responsible" is misleading and kind of inflammatory Ben--the facts revealed by an impact assessment conducted by NAP are responsible--some development just shouldn't happen due to site conditions and variables.
Exactly, like the unneccessary new high school that chopped a hill top off to pave acres of parking lot and build buildings, leveling woods for soccer fields, but then not allowing a 9 hole course in the woods lol
