Course News- Opening Date

Golf Course Opening

Due to the long range forecast, we are postponing the opening of the golf course until next week. With the potential freezing rain over the weekend, we believe this is the right decision for the long-term health of the course and providing the best playing conditions for the members.

An update will be sent early next week to confirm the opening date. We look forward to seeing everyone out on the course very soon.

Driving Range – Closed Good Friday 

The Range will be closed April 14th on Good Friday as we will have climbers pulling the nets back.

The Range will reopen on Saturday morning at 10:00 am.

Turf Samples

Today three turf samples were removed from various greens locations. These samples will be placed in a warm area of the shop where they will receive water and sunshine. This will provide us with a better indication of how our greens dealt with the winter weather.

Toro Turf Prism

This new tool known as a Height of Cut Prism Gauge is used to measure the actual turfgrass height of cut, smoothness, and quality of cut. The prism gauge well help us accurately assess the sharpness of our cutting equipment resulting in healthier and more consistent putting surface.

Course Update

Although we had a really long fall, it was a relatively wet end to fall. The course did have some time before the first deep freeze to dry up. I am confident that with the snow  we received the turf has had excellent protection from the cold of winter. Read More>> Read more »

Happy New Year

The entire maintenance staff would like to wish all members a Happy New Year. Its hard to believe that we could be back on the course in as little as 3 months. We are all looking forward to getting back out there and having a great 2017 season.
