Course Update

With the arrival of mid-September it is now time for us to begin to take the necessary steps to prepare the property for winter.  The focus moving forward will be on plant health and turf recovery from what was a stressful summer for the finely groomed turf on the property.  The mowing frequencies are now reduced and the heights of cut are now increasing on greens.  Beginning on September 15th the range deck will move to mats to allow the turf time to heal ahead of next season. While we will continue to change holes and clean the course daily there will be less focus on playing conditions to ensure we give the golf course the best possible chance at a successful fall and overwinter. The tee sheet remains at capacity which also means we need to compensate for this and the surfaces will see a steep increase in height of cut.Read More>>

Course Condition Update

This much needed rain event delivered just over 2& 1/4 inches on the Niakwa property Friday night into Saturday morning.   This was an excellent rain fall that the property handled for the most part quite well. With that volume of water although we were very dry heading into the rain has resulted in soft conditions that prevented us from any mowing maintenance this morning.  The team is out on course blowing greens of debris, setting new cups and moving tee markers. Read More>>
