Author:  Tom Brady To most golfers, trees are just an obstacle to be overcome, but Toad Valley is more than just that.  Forty years ago, when we opened, there were no trees on the course.  Every tree has been planted.  Some by “critters” and wind (once a seed source was near enough), but most have […]

As mentioned here, my dad has planted basically every tree on the golf course.  He has had some help from the birds and squirrels who forget where they bury their winter meal.  Overall, however, they have all been planted by Tom and his tree spade.
