Wet but Playable

The golf course survived the recent rains better than we expected.  Yes it is very wet in spots but it is very playable and despite all the wind and soggy ground we only lost one tree.

Seventh Place - Eppies Great Race

Bradshaw's Eppies Team

We finished 7th Place in our division - The Tandem Kayak Division.  It is our forth year of doing the race and we have finished as high as 4th Place but either we are getting older (and slower) or the competition is getting tougher.  We prefer to believe the latter.  Richard had his usual fast time in the 6 plus mile run and Justin did equally as well on the 12.5 mile bike portion while Elisa and I were the anchor leg, the grueling almost 7 mile kayak.  It's tough work floating down river to cross the finish line with all the applause and accolades of the crowds to spur us on.  Elisa and I have vowed next year to improve our training regime and actually do more than one practice run down the river before the race.  Watch out for next year because we are on a mission.

New Landscaping

Two years ago Sac County finished the road widening in front of the golf course.  Since then we have been working on replacing the landscaping along Bradshaw Road that was removed for the road widening.  Last year we put in the irrigation and this year we re landscaped the entry, replaced our signage, and are putting down weed control cloth and bark.  Hopefully this fall we can start replacing some of the plants.

April Showers

We have had a good spring at Bradshaw Ranch, weather-wise, and even completed punching and sanding the greens earlier than normal but since then the weather has turned a little weird. We have had a lot of rain the last three weeks or so and colder than normal temperatures. Finally the forecast is for more spring like weather, high 60's and low 70's, so we hope to see you at the Ranch soon.
