Putting Green Open

We are pleased to open the putting green for practice beginning today to aid in your preparations for the golf season ahead. It will be open for practice through the weekend. We will monitor the forecast and conditions for early next week and update membership if the green needs to close.

Winter Course Use

Course Use Update

With the increasingly warm weather and all signs pointing towards what we hope is an early golf season we will be shutting down access to the course for the use of winter trails.   There is no longer sufficient snow cover to groom trails and in many areas of the property turf is beginning to be exposed. The snow pack is also hardening through the freeze and thaws we are experiencing making grooming no longer possible. Read More>>

Course Use Reminder

Over the past five days we have had many people using the property.  Unfortunately people continue to use the property in the wrong fashion.  The ski trails that were groomed for use have become a walking path which is no longer functional for skiing. Read More>>

Winter Course Use

It has been an excellent stretch of early winter weather.  With the beautiful weather we have seen an abundance of use on the golf course property.  While we are excited to offer the use of the property to members throughout the winter there are some items that we need cooperation with to ensure the impacts of winter use are minimized.  Read More>>

Weekly Course Update

The battle of the leaves has begun.  With the heavy frosts we have experienced and the time of year one of the biggest challenges the Turfcare team will have over the course of the next couple weeks will be to keep the leaves clear of all prime play areas and keeping the course playable.  We will utilize blowers each morning to clear greens, fairways and tee boxes.  We will blow all leaves to the rough where we will then mulch them down.  We will utilize some tree lines and blow the leaves back in them.Read More>>

Aeration

Please be aware that we are beginning to aerate fairways, tees, approaches and collars this week on the property.  The fairway aeration process will take the duration of the week to complete.  Please acknowledge the Turfcare operator as you are playing.  To assist us in completing this process we ask that you please move your ball or wait for them to pass while playing to keep some efficiencies in place. This is a time consuming and difficult task to complete with a full tee sheet and your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Read More>>
