Mill Creek in Progress

Guest Author - Letta Meinen

It is good to see Mill Creek going through an upgradde that was a long time coming. The new owners have started right in to make changes. This progress is so good to see and I am anxious for any new development. The work on hole #5 now but will return as Hole #12 which has been the biggest change and will make this golf hole a difficult one to play. A Par three and always had been a high drop shot to make a good score.

Even though it does not look that difficult from this picture from the Women’s tee box you always needed to be able to hit that high shot to the green. Sometimes if you happened to be short and found yourself in this drainage ditch filled with rocks and dirt you could possibly hit it out. That will not be the case with this view of the reconstruction of the drainage area. The limestone blocks makes for a beautiful setting to the green but creates a more difficult golf hole. They also upgraded it with laying sod down to the limestone and around the area that was bare ground.

From this drainage area it flow through under the road in between the tee boxes on hole #4 but will become hole #11. This drainage continues under the cart path to in front of Hole #1 which had become filled with dirt and rocks. You can even walk across this and hit a ball to the green from there. I have an idea this will be the next upgrade that resembles the work done on #5.

I have observed when I was playing on Monday that they were removing piles of old sand and dirt that was from the time they updated the sand traps. This dirt had been piled up between the #4 tee box and #1 fairway. They removed all this and filled in the ditch along the #1 fairway. The #1 golf hole is a par 5 and takes some good shots to get down to this drainage area to shoot to the green.

I run across this row of limestone boulders stored on the old #4 fairway which has not been used for over two years because of the flood I take this route sometimes on my morning walks. It looks to me with the sand pile and big loader that it will be a short run across to the #1 drainage areas to upgrade this drainage like the one on #5. Here again it is making the golf course more difficult which is a good thing.

I am on the board for the Mill Creek Association and we are planning our National Night Out in October with a thank you to the new owners of the golf course. Mill Creek residents will have this time to welcome the new owners and get behind them and hopefully become members of this Mill Creek Country Club.
