Weeping Willows gone bad

Yesterday morning on the 8th hole another large branch from a weeping willow broke and fell to the ground. You can see in the photo, I have outlined in red, the very small area of live wood that was supporting the weight of the entire branch. Hazards like this are difficult to detect because the wood has rotted from the inside and there are no visual signs of decay. This particular willow is dangerous and will be removed. We will also assess the health of other willows on property and take appropriate action to ensure the safety of our members and guests.
