This week, we celebrate the 1 year anniversary of the Armchair Architect thread. 1 year and 3.1K posts later, Brough Creek National is rounding into form. To think it all started out with a 2 green wedge range concept is crazy. It was a wet one in Kansas City this weekend. After a slow start on Saturday, we got after it and knocked out some maintenance tasks. I weed waked both sides of the creek.
Things are happening, folks. We spent all of Sunday out at BCN. We accomplished some critical tasks with 30 hours spent. First thing of note. The grass we planted 2 weeks back is starting to pop.

By Rob Lippold Member #215 @Rocco1088 To piggyback on the previous update, I wanted to share my experience with the crew. As mentioned, I finally got out to BCN yesterday, and what a time for the first visit. The Boys of Brough Creek (band name trademark pending) had the tree clearing to a point where we were able to play all 7 holes for the first time. You know, typing that out, and considering how
